Students at Haddonfield’s public schools managed to avoid contracting the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, during the first few months of the pandemic, but things have changed.
The first case — a male juvenile at Central School — was reported to the School District by the Camden County Department of Health on September 22. In October, three cases were reported. So far in November, the total is 14 students and three adults (presumably teachers and/or staff members).
Six students (included in the 14 noted above) were reported yesterday and today alone: Four females in their 10s on Friday (one at the Middle School and three at the High School); and two males in their 10s on Saturday (both at the High School).
In each of its notifications to parents, guardians, and staff, the School District has stated, “Based on currently available information, this individual did not likely contract the virus in school.”
