FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Public School District informed staff and parents of King Elementary School of additional COVID-19 cases on Sunday, November 29.
Due to the new cases, all King and Explorers staff will work remotely until a return to the building on December 7, said the Framingham Public Schools.
The district said in an email to families & staff that individuals who were “identified as close contacts of the person with COVID-19 have been notified and instructed to remain home in quarantine. Those individuals received a phone call from the district.
The district considers close contact to be within 6 feet of the person for at least 15 cumulative 15 minutes with a 24 hour period.
Most of the district’s 9,000+ students are attended school virtually.
Framingham Public School returned a couple hundred students in October with the highest needs to their physical classrooms.
On November 5, roughly another 300 students returned to the classroom, including more students at BLOCKS preschool.
