ASHLAND – An Ashland school will go remote-only, due to a positive COVID case.
A member of the William Pittaway School tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday afternoon, according to Ashland Superintendent Jim Adams.
With contact tracing, and the need to quarantine those exposed, the school had staff issues, and thus the decision was made to go remote, wrote Adams in an email.
“This decision was based on the number of individuals that need to be quarantined due to being identified as a close contact, which therefore results in Pittaway not having sufficient personnel to conduct classes,” wrote Adams.
Pittaway School houses pre-kindergarten students, and students will be remote only until December 16.
Families who may have been close contacts have been notified, according to the Ashland Public School District.
