SUMMIT, NJ – Five new cases of COVID-19 involving “individuals” at four Summit Public Schools campuses have been identified. The confirmation of the cases was detailed in a February 16 letter issued to the “Summit Public Schools Community” from Superintendent of Schools Scott Hough and the principals from the four schools involved.
The letter, subsequently obtained by TAPinto Summit from a third party, states, “Over the last several days, the District has been notified that two individuals from Franklin Elementary School, an individual from Washington Elementary School, an individual from Wilson Primary Center, and an individual from Summit High School have tested positive for COVID-19. Our Nursing Department, in collaboration with the Department of Health, conducted contact tracing for these cases. Potential close contacts at Washington have been identified and notified. Health officials did not recommend closing any of the schools.”
