The Curley School on Centre Street in Jamaica Plain will shut for ten days, starting tomorrow, due to an outbreak of Covid-19 across "multiple grade levels and classrooms over the last week," school Principal Katie Grassa informed parents today.
Students are being sent home with Chromebooks so they can pick up where they left off earlier this year with at-home learning.
The school will re-open Monday, Nov. 22, which should give time for both the outbreak to end and for the school to "add staffing capacity to fully implement the test and stay and contact tracing programs," Grassa wrote.
She added the closing came on the advice of the Boston Public Health Commission.
BPHC advises those who have been on campus to self-isolate and avoid groups or gatherings, this includes community activities such as practices and social events, for at least five days and until you receive a negative COVID-19 test, regardless of vaccination status. Please stay home and seek guidance from your medical professional if you develop any symptoms.
Still being figured out: How to get food to students who normally get their weekday meals at the school.
