At Least 30 Attleboro High Students Infected After Contact With Classmate

Dozens of students at Attleboro High School are under quarantine after a student who tested positive for the coronavirus attended in-person classes earlier this week, authorities say.

The student went to school Monday, but didn’t attend school Tuesday. School nurses identified 30 other students who had close contact with the student who tested positive, school officials said.

“This unacceptable outcome was caused by delays in the reporting timeline, not a breakdown in our safety protocols,” Superintendent David Sawyer said.
