Fitch High School to shift to remote learning next week, after COVID-19 case reported

Groton — Superintendent Michael Graner said Fitch High School will shift to full distance learning next week to allow for contact tracing, after the school district learned Friday that a member of the high school community tested positive for COVID-19.

Graner said in a notification that “the individual had contact with numerous persons in the high school” and the school district is working with Ledge Light Health District on contact tracing.

“No in-person classes will be held from November 2 through November 6,” Graner wrote. “All extra-curricular and athletic activities will also be postponed during this timeframe. The affected person has been instructed to isolate at home following public health guidelines.”
