WYOMING, Mich. — After receiving news from the Kent County Health Department (KCHD) of a positive COVID-19 test result, Wyoming Public Schools announced Saturday that students and staff at Gladiola Elementary School will move to remote learning, starting on Monday, Oct. 19.

Barring any additional positive cases, school for Gladiola students and staff will resume in-person on Thursday, Oct. 29.

The district was notified by the KCHD of the positive case on Saturday, Oct. 17.

The KCHD has recommended the district close the elementary school for in-person instruction, due to the extent of possible students and staff who came into contact with the individual who tested positive.

The Gladiola building will be closed out of an abundance of caution to help KCHDD complete contact tracing and slow potential spread.

Wyoming Public Schools is urging that all individuals who experience symptoms or may have been exposed to COVID-19 get tested and self-quarantine.

Gladiola families are advised to check their email and ParentVue accounts for additional updates.
