Madison Central reports positive COVID-19 case in elementary school
One more student or staff member in Madison Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19. The Madison Central School District notified parents of the positive test in an e-mail Thursday. Superintendent Joel Jorgenson said there were no close contacts for the school. He said that even though there were no close contacts, they still inform parents and guardians of any COVID-19 positive cases. This brings the total number of positive cases within the school district to 39 since September.
There are no classes today at Madison Central schools. Superintendent Jorgenson said that school is cancelled for two main reasons. He said the main reason is to conduct a deep cleaning in every classroom in all of the school district’s facilities. The other reason, Jorgenson said, is to prepare how the district will handle snow days moving forward and the possible option of using snow days as remote learning days.
