The announcement was made during last night's school board meeting. "The exposed individuals, we worked with the DOH to determine who they are. And again, if you go back to our plan, those are the steps. We share it with the DOH, when they find out something, they share it with the district," says Dr. O’Connell.
The superintendent also is telling families and staff to be prepared for changes going forward.              
News 12 has been told the individual tested positive this past Friday.
