New London High School reports one COVID-19 case this week

New London — A student at New London High School tested positive for COVID-19 this week and is following isolation protocols, district Superintendent Cynthia Ritchie announced Thursday.

The school, following consultation with Ledge Light Health District, remained open on Friday. It was the only case reported at the high school over the past two weeks. Ritchie said Harbor School, which has closed to in-person classes for two weeks because of multiple reported cases, is expected to resume classes next week.

The district continues to promote the additional free testing opportunities in the city. Ritchie said any future decisions on a shift to remote learning will be made based on the scenario, combined with health data. Schools stand ready to transition between the hybrid model and distance learning at any time. 

She credited teachers and support staff for meeting needs of students at school and in remote learning.

“I commend our staff, who should be considered heroes during these unprecedented times. Their continuous efforts deserve to be recognized,” Ritchie said.
