FRAMINGHAM – Students in two elementary school classrooms have been told to stay home until after the holiday break, due to COVID-19 cases.
the Framingham Public School district has decided to close two classrooms at McCarthy Elementary.
“Two of our classrooms have an increasing and ongoing confirmation of positive COVID cases. After thoughtful consideration, the decision has been made to temporarily close those classrooms to prevent the spread of illness. This decision was made in collaboration with the District COVID team, McCarthy administration, the school nurse, the Framingham Department of Public Health, and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education,” wrote the district to parents last night.
“Students impacted in these classrooms may return to school on Monday, January 3, 2022 provided they have a negative COVID test and have no COVID-like symptoms,” wrote the district.
