WRIGHTSTOWN - One classroom of students in the Wrightstown Community School District has been quarantined at home because of the COVID virus since school reopened after Labor Day.
Superintendent Carla Buboltz told the school board about the action at the board's meeting on Wednesday, September 16.
For confidentiality reasons, Buboltz did not reveal which class was quarantined or from which of the district's three school buildings.
She also said that any individual students who come to school and are or become ill are sent home and either must quarantine at home for 14 days or get tested for COVID-19 with a negative result.
The district will not identify any buildings or grades in connection with quarantines, she said.
Because of COVID concerns, the district's food service department had some employees unable to work. The result: staff members from the district office were in kitchens helping to prepare student meals.
High school Principal Scott Thompson ended up as a lunch room cashier and as the sunrise attendant at the Wellness and Fitness Center, opening the facility at 5 a.m., because of a staff shortage there.
