FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Public School district has unveiled a COVID-19 dashboard this week.
The dashboard reports the public school district has 5 coronavirus cases this school year.
“While we did include a school-by-school analysis for in-person staff and students, we will not be disaggregating the staff vs. student data though our contact tracing nurse maintains all of those details. The reporting focus is on individuals and the potential for contact with others, irrespective of staff or student designation. This is a consistent practice among school districts and is a privacy safeguard for everyone involved,” said Superintendent Tremblay in unveiling the dashboard to staff.
On November 16, the district announced a positive case tied to King Elementary.
According to the dashboard, 5 individuals have had to quarantine due to the Stapleton/King.
Last Sunday, it was made known that a BLOCKS member tested positive for the coronavirus. Five individuals needed to quarantine based on that case, but no other became positive.
Last month, a Framingham High staffer tested positive for COVID-19. According to the dashboard, that case prompted 10 individuals to quarantine.
The dashboard also mentions a case at Potter Road on November 12.
Framingham Public School returned a couple hundred students in October with the highest needs to their physical classrooms.
Most of the district’s 9,000+ students are attended school virtually.
On November 5, roughly another 300 students returned to the classroom, including more students at BLOCKS preschool.
