3 Vermont schools plan to reopen Wednesday
The Champlain Valley School District says Allen Brook and Williston Central School plan to reopen Wednesday following a two day closure over coronavirus concerns.
School officials said the closure was prompted by a staff member who stayed at an out-of-state hotel where other guests had confirmed cases of coronavirus.
Officials at the Waits River Valley School in East Corinth also called off classes Tuesday to disinfect the school. They say they currently have several staff and students out with flu-like symptoms and that a Vermonter with ties to the WRVS community is currently being tested for COVID-19. They also expect to re-open Wednesday.
The Twin Valley School District -- including the elementary school in Wilmington and the middle and high schools in Whitingham have been the only other schools closed so far. They called off classes Monday and had a two-hour delay Tuesday.
Vermont education officials have said a statewide closure of schools is not needed at this point.
