November 14, 2021 -- 

Dear Medfield Families,

We have been informed that five students at Wheelock and six students at Dale Street have tested positive for COVID-19. Community and in-school close contacts have been identified and informed. We have implemented the "Test and Stay" protocols for any in-school close contacts. Also, we want to bring to your attention that over the past week, four of our COVID-19 positive students ride on Elementary Bus # 3 and four other COVID-19 positive students ride Elementary Bus #11. Through contact tracing it has been determined that some of these students have had contact outside of bus transportation, however, parents of students on Elementary Bus #3 and Elementary Bus #11 should watch for any symptoms and contact their school's nurse if they have any concerns. Although we have seen an increase in positive cases over the past 7 days, we continue to follow the health and safety protocols outlined in our Fall 2021 Opening Plan, as well as consult with state and local officials if issues or questions arise.
