Good Evening,

Covid Update

As of this recording, We have had 53 cases confirmed cases of Covid in the district this week. 38 of the positive cases this week were at Francis Wyman Elementary School, 1 at Pine Glen, 5 at Fox Hill, 4 at MSMS and 5 at BHS. While the case number is higher than we would like at Francis Wyman, we did email the Francis Wyman parents on Monday to let them know that over the weekend and during the day Monday, we became aware of 17 new cases. We want to note that we conducted more than 1,000 tests this week as a part of our Test and Stay Program and we have had 18 positives. Over the last two days there have been four positives in Test and Stay with over 500 tests being conducted.

We will continue to utilize Test and Stay next week and all elementary students will be eating lunch in their classrooms.

Thank you to the Burlington Police Department
