Fitch High School to shift to full distance learning for the upcoming week
Groton — Fitch High School will shift to full distance learning for the upcoming week, after the school district announced on Friday a positive COVID-19 case at the high school.
“No in-person classes will be held from October 19 through October 23,” Superintendent Michael Graner wrote in a notification. “In addition, all high school sports and other extracurricular activities will not meet in-person beginning on Monday, October 19. We are taking these measures to safeguard the health of our students and staff. Having no in-person classes or extracurricular activities at Fitch High School for one week will provide time to monitor the test results of persons identified as close contacts.”
