Covid strains school staffing

BRADFORD—Orange East Supervisory Union superintendent Emilie Knisley reported that there had been “a big uptick on COVID cases” in all the district schools at the Oxbow Unified Union School District meeting on Oct. 23. She did not provide specific numbers, but that the increase placed additional demands on school staff.
According to the Vermont Department of Health, there have been five cases at Bradford Elementary School this year, one at Newbury Elementary School, three at Oxbow, and one at Thetford Elementary School. Zero cases have been reported at both Waits River Valley School and River Bend Career and Technical Center.
