Southwestern To Go Remote, JPS Reports Another Positive Case

Southwestern Central School will go to remote learning Friday, Monday and Tuesday due to students and staff in quarantine within the community.

“We received word today of additional staff that are required to quarantine,” said Southwestern Superintendent Maureen Donahue. “As a direct result of staffing concerns and for precautionary reasons we will pivot to full remote for three days. We will be full remote Friday, November 20, Monday, November 23, and Tuesday, November 24, 2020.”

In addition, the Jamestown Public Schools District announced Thursday that a high school student had also tested positive for the coronavirus. The student last attended school on Friday, Nov. 13.

Because the student had been attending off-site at the time of diagnosis, the county Health Department has advised that no in-school contact tracing will be required.

“Out-of-school close contacts are being notified and appropriate steps are being taken. Please be aware that the district cannot release the name or any other personally identifiable information regarding this individual.”
