Dear ASD Community:
The purpose of this letter is to notify you that a staff member from GCEC has tested positive for COVID-19. The affected person has been instructed to remain home and quarantine for 14 days. Anyone who is considered a “close contact” with this person has been contacted by school or local health officials and provided with instructions on the appropriate steps to take.
Our contact tracing has identified several staff that had direct contact with the positive case. In response to this large group of staff having direct contact, we will be moving to full remote learning starting (Monday, November 16) for the whole school (both PACES and CORE) until after Thanksgiving. We will make immediate arrangements to deliver devices to any student that does not have their chromebook with them so that they can participate in remote learning.
We are closely monitoring this situation and working with the West Hartford/Bloomfield Department of Public Health and will provide you with updates as we know more. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Director of Education
