Monomoy Regional School District notified of positive COVID case at Monomoy Regional High School

Monomoy Regional School District has been notified that an individual at Monomoy Regional High School has tested positive for COVID-19. All students and staff who have been identified as being in close contact with the positive individual have already been contacted by phone to discuss the need to quarantine and next steps. District officials are in direct contact with the local board of health and are following all health and safety protocols as directed. The board of health and VNA have initiated contact tracing protocols. 

All students and staff in classroom or bus contact with the positive individual will be operating remotely for the near future, as all will be quarantining for 14 days since their last exposure to the positive individual.

“Our high school students and staff are already comfortable operating remotely, as they have had a hybrid rotation in place since school started in September,” said Monomoy Superintendent Dr. Scott Carpenter. “This will help ensure that robust learning can continue even during quarantine periods. We are confident that with our strong safety measures, including a minimum of 6-foot spacing in our classrooms, masks worn by all students and staff, and an intense cleaning regimen, we are well positioned to contain additional transmission.” 

MRSD sanitizes every classroom each evening, and to further prevent transmission of the virus to other staff and students, additional sanitation is being done at Monomoy Regional High School this evening.
