WRVS resumes after shutdown

WAITS RIVER—Classes at Waits River Valley School resumed last week after a post-holiday surge Covid and other illnesses prompted closures at all Orange East Supervisory Union schools.
At a school board meeting, held via Zoom, on Jan. 13, WRVS Principal Carlotta Simonds-Perantoni said that between Jan. 5 and 12, there were 14 students and six staff members that tested positive with 15 additional people quarantining. There were also six cases that were community-based, which means they were not caught at school.
