Good Evening ConVal Community,
We were informed of three positive cases of COVID-19 at the following schools, Antrim Elementary School (1), ConVal High School (1), and Hancock Elementary School (1).
As soon as we were informed of the cases, we began our thorough process of identifying anyone who may have had close contact, which follows the most recent guidance from the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (NH DHHS).
Out of the three cases reported, none involved close contact. Because the staff and students continue to implement the mitigation strategies outlined in our Reopening and Recovery Plan, there is no need to change our instructional mode at this point in time.
