FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Public School District informed staff and parents of King Elementary School of additional COVID-19 cases on Sunday, November 29.

A total of 27 individuals are or have been under a quarantine after three positive cases of COVID-19 ties to King Elementary school, as of November 25.

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.

The Superintendent of Schools announced this month that about 2,000 high needs students would NOT return to the classrooms in December – this is phase III.
