Positive Covid test causes entire CMS 5th grade to quarantine

Carbondale Middle School has transitioned most of its fifth grade cohort, including students and teachers, to distance learning for the coming week due to a positive COVID-19 test.

The fifth grade and its teachers are considered to be one large group based on their interactions with one another, and that is why everyone who falls into that category must quarantine through Jan. 31, according to a Friday press release.

Parents of the fifth grade students were made aware of the quarantine and cancellation for in-person teaching before the school day began on Jan. 22.

In-person learning for CMS fifth graders is to resume on Feb. 1.
