MUMS reports positive COVID case
MIDDLEBURY — A group of 70 Middlebury Union Middle School students will be studying remotely this entire week in light of a recent, positive COVID-19 test confirmed among the MUMS community.
“Led by ACSD’s COVID-19 Coordinator Kelly Landwehr, we met with necessary members of school to help us with contact tracing and make decisions on how to best support our continuity of learning,” reads an email sent to the MUMS community this past weekend by Andrew Conforti, MUMS principal. “We are confident that we've shared all critical information related to this positive case.”
It was a member of the school’s “Phoenix” team that recorded the positive test, according to school officials.
“With the exception of the Phoenix team special educator, all students and staff on the Phoenix team only will be 100% remote this week Monday 1/11 through Friday 1/15,” reads the email. “With no in-person learning for Phoenix students only, they will be expected to join in via zoom at the beginning of each of their classes.”
Any student not contacted directly by the school is still able to join school activities.
