Brighton Families and Friends,
In the spirit of transparency, and with safety as our top priority, we are writing all Brighton families to share that one of our grandparents, who was on campus the last week of in-person classes, has self-reported a positive test for COVID-19.
We offer our thoughts and prayers to this grandparent and to everyone in our Brighton family in this time of uncertainty. The grandparent attended afternoon presentations of Brighton seniors’ capstone projects on Monday, March 9, and Wednesday, March 11. The family is reporting that all is well. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) does not define simply being in the same room, or in this case, in the gymnasium, with someone who tests positive as “close contact.”
Should you experience any symptoms listed at ww.cdc.gov/coronavirus, please contact your doctor. Please continue to take care of yourselves by practicing social distancing, washing your hands frequently, avoiding travel and staying away from gatherings of more than 10 people.
The Brighton School is closely following the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and local public health officials’ directions. We have taken all instruction online and will make all decisions about continuing in-person activities and instruction with the safety of our students at the forefront.
Janie Keller, President
Kenny Henderson, Executive Director
