A person who has tested positive for COVID-19 was in the Ridgefield High School building. A letter was sent to parents and staff by the Superintendent noting that the building would be thoroughly cleaned. Staff head back to school on Wednesday and students return on the 27th. The start date has not been changed by this incident. The district alerted those who would have had access to Ridgefield High School on August 10th about the positive test and urged them to follow the CDC and Connecticut Department of Public Health protocol to quarantine for 14 days.
