The Bridgehampton School has instituted remote learning for six days starting Wednesday as more Covid-19 cases were diagnosed there. One staff member and two students tested positive for the virus, according to Robert Hauser, the district superintendent.
There are now 19 staff members and 21 students in quarantine as a result of those three new cases, Mr. Hauser said Wednesday morning. Bridgehampton has had eight confirmed cases of the virus since school started in September.
The district is "100 percent remote for all grades out of an abundance of caution," Mr. Hauser said in a message to The Star.
The switch to distance learning means students will not return to the school building in person before the winter holiday break, which begins on Dec. 24 and ends on Jan. 3.
