We were just informed of a confirmed case of COVID-19 at our elementary school. Anyone who was considered a close contact will receive a call from the nurse this afternoon. To give elementary school teachers a chance to prepare for a shift to remote learning, school is cancelled for all elementary school students tomorrow, March 22nd. Remote learning will begin on March 23, and continue through April 5th. This shift only impacts Newmarket Elementary students. On campus learning will continue at the Junior Senior High School at this time.
Just a reminder, if you or a member of your household are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, such as a fever, chills, respiratory illness, aches or change in taste and smell, please stay home and away from others and get a COVID-19 PCR test. You may also choose to seek out testing from your healthcare provider or at one of the testing sites located throughout the state
On a related note, I have reached out to Aimee Gigandet, Newmarkets Recreation Director and she will meet with her staff in the morning to see if they might be able to provide families with a supervised option for students. More information to follow about this tomorrow.
