Staff member, students quarantined after KMS Covid-19 positive

Middle School on target to re-open Tuesday

Posted

Several students and a staff member at Kickemuit Middle School are under quarantine, after district officials learned Thursday afternoon of a positive Covid-19 test at the school.

Kickemuit Middle School was closed to in-person learning Friday following Thursday's positive test. Subsequent contract tracing  Friday  cleared six of seven  staff members who had been in contact with the sick staff member.  In addition, Superintendent Dr. Brice said, "a number of students have been quarantined and their parents have been notified."

With the additional quarantined staff member, there are currently 16 other staff  "absences"  for a variety of reasons, Dr. Brice said.
 
Unless new information that prevents it comes in, Dr. Brice said "we are a go" for re-opening the middle school to in-person learning Tuesday, Nov. 17. Monday is a district-wide distance learning day.
