Kent officials have met with the leaders of three boarding and private schools in town. First Selectman Jean Speck says all have taken the COVID-19 prevention responsibility seriously. They have discussed plans for how to control the spread of coronavirus and she called the discussions productive. Almost 2,000 tests have been conducted in Kent School, Marvelwood School, and South Kent School and only one student and one staff member were positive. The independent schools created some basic guidelines top protect their campuses and the community at large. The campuses are closed, meaning students will not be allowed into town. No visitors, including parents are allowed on most campuses and students and faculty will continue to have regular COVID-19 testing. The Kent School is permitting parents to visit students on a limited basis.
