CLAREMONT — Stevens High School is moving its classes online this week after two positive COVID-19 cases were confirmed among members of the school community within the last couple of weeks.

In a email sent to parents Saturday, Claremont Schools Superintendent Michael Testa said the school building would be closed to students Monday and Tuesday, just before the Thanksgiving break, giving students 10 days of separation until they resume in-person classes on Monday, Nov. 30.

School officials will use the time to conduct and follow up on contact tracing, Testa wrote.

The decision was made after one COVID-19 case was confirmed Nov. 9 and another on Friday.

Students were sent home early Friday, and any students who test positive over the weekend are asked to inform the school nurse Janine Riley at jriley@sau6.org.
