NEW LONDON — Kearsarge Regional High School has recommended 35 students as well as staff members who traveled to Europe — including Italy — over February break to stay home until March 9.

In a statement posted to Facebook on Sunday, Superintendent Winfried Feneberg said there is “no indication” that the students were exposed to COVID-19 while abroad on the school-sanctioned trip.

Feneberg said officials have decided on this step “out of an abundance of caution.”

The statement doesn’t provide the dates when the group traveled or when they returned.

Students who stay home will be able to use online technology to keep up with their studies and will not be marked absent, Feneberg said in the statement.
