SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – The South Brunswick High School released students early for a second day after 150 students either tested positive for COVID-19 or were experiencing symptoms. School officials believe the outbreak was linked to a school concert last week.
The district has announced that masks will once again be required at the school. Students today will be dismissed early.
“We have identified the root cause of the outbreak, and it will be 7 days outside of this event as of tomorrow. The early release and masks will make the key difference and allow us to maintain our normal routines,” the district said this week in a letter to parents. “We do not expect that further alteration to the schedule will be needed next week. However, please note that masks will remain required tomorrow and for all of next week. We will reevaluate the need for masks at that time.”
