  STAFFORD – Southern Regional High School is the latest area school that is known to have told parents about a COVID-19 positive student at school.

  Close contacts were notified on September 14 of a student who tested positive in Hybrid B. They were last in school on Wednesday, September 9.

  A student tested positive for COVID-19 at Jackson Memorial High School. A letter was sent home from the principal to the parents of any of that student’s close contacts letting them know of the diagnosis.

  The staff at the school will clean and disinfect areas that the student had come into contact with, in addition to the staff’s regular sanitation protocols.

  In related news, students who attend the Griebling School in Howell will be switched to a fully remote learning program for two days this week after someone on school grounds tested positive for COVID-19.

  According to the school’s website and a letter sent home to parents, the remote learning will take place Monday, September 14 and Tuesday, September 15.

  It is unclear if the person who tested positive was a teacher or student but the letter sent by Principal Nancy Rupp and Superintendent Joseph Isola called for patience and vigilance.
