John M. Marshall Elementary School in East Hampton will be closed for in-person instruction on Monday, November 23, and Tuesday, November 24, it was announced in an email to parents on Friday, after a student tested positive for COVID-19, requiring “a number of students” to quarantine, according to Assistant Superintendent Adam Fine.
Mr. Fine said the district anticipates reopening on Monday, November 30. Students will utilize remote learning until then.
“With the holidays approaching, we ask that you continue to partner with us at this time to ensure the safety of our students and staff,” Mr. Fine said. “If your child is sick, keep them home. When in doubt, keep them home. Younger children have sometimes very mild symptoms, but can be positive. Your child will need a doctor’s note to return after any illness. Please call your school nurse if you have any questions.”
