Alcott COVID Cases

January 29, 2021

Dear Families:

As you saw, this week we have had a number of cases at Alcott.  In the last 12 hours or so, we learned of two adult cases. It now appears that we have 4 total cases this week (3 adults, 1 child) that may be connected to one another.  It is difficult to pinpoint timelines and exposures exactly but we are now implementing our protocol for possible school transmission.

All of these classrooms are in quarantine as are any other close contacts.  This morning, I am consulting with Concord’s Public Health Nurse and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to determine whether the cases are considered contained or if additional steps are required like school closure.    Our structures have students and teachers mixing very little which is very beneficial in this situation.

We are actively reviewing the safety protocols and their implementation and will deeply clean Alcott this weekend.  I will provide additional information as I have it later today.  Please let us know if you have questions or concerns.
