Bristol Elementary Closes; 250 Indian Trail Students Told to Stay Home

Sept. 16, 2020 3:10p; Updated at 5:50 with Bristol closure

(WGTD)---One Kenosha County school closed entirely Wednesday while another sent 250 students home to quarantine because of possible COVID-19 exposure.

Bristol Elementary announced Wednesday evening that it'll be closed through Sept. 29 after two school employees and one student tested positive.

The school has an enrollment of 655 4K-8 students.

The decision to close the school entirely was made because of the "broad reach" of those infected, according to a news release. None of the three is hospitalized. 

The school opened for the year Sept. 1.

Meanwhile, the cases of two students at Indian Trail High School & Academy who tested positive for the coronavirus mean that some 250 classmates will have to switch to remote learning. And those students have been told to quarantine for 14 days from the date of their potential exposure. 

Kenosha Unified students had been given the option of either in-person instruction or online learning. The fall semester began just last Monday. 

COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, fatigue, and headache.
