An Update from Superintendent of Schools on COVID-19

The following was sent by Superintendent Jon Sills this afternoon: 

 

Dear Families, Faculty and Staff,

I am writing to update you on the case involving our Bedford student whose father's test results came back as presumptive positive last night. Since that time, we have learned that the mother's test is presumptive positive as well.

Prior to last night, our understanding from the family was that the student did not have overt, impactful, and pervasive symptoms consistent with COVID-19 toward the latter end of last week. We now understand that overt, impactful, and pervasive symptoms consistent with illness occurred outside of the school environment.

Please know that this situation is extremely fluid. 

We will keep you informed regarding the implications of a negative or a positive test.

Jon Sills

Superintendent

Bedford Public Schools
