A ninth-grade student at the Bronxville School tested positive for COVID-19, forcing some classes to switch to remote learning on Friday, though the rest of the district remained open.

Bronxville Schools Superintendent Roy Montesano issued a notice to the community late on Thursday, Nov. 19 advising that a student in the high school community had tested positive for COVID-19.

In response, Montesano said that the entire ninth grade would be distance learning for at least Friday, Nov. 20 as the district and health officials conduct contact tracing to determine who may have been exposed to the student and the virus.

Anyone who may have been exposed will be alerted by officials and told to enter a 14-day quarantine. Montesano said that until contact tracing is completed and the district knows how many may need to quarantine, it is unclear if the classes will remain remote.

Montesano said that anyone who is instructed to quarantine will not be cleared to return for in-person learning until Thursday, Dec. 3.

The Bronxville School remains open for in-person learning for elementary and middle school students, as well as for sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

“Cleaning and disinfecting of all exposed areas has been completed,” Montesano noted. “The school is also taking precautions to prevent the introduction and spread of viruses and other germs and is cleaning frequently touched surfaces daily.”
