VALE – Four classes being held at Vale Elementary School have been suspended because four staff and one student have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, according to Alisha McBride, Vale School District superintendent.

McBride notified school families by letter on Sunday that the district “has been notified that individuals who have been in the Vale Elementary School building have been diagnosed with COVID-19.”

The letter, delivered by email and on the district’s social media channels, said the district was canceling certain in-person classes. All on-line classes will continue as scheduled.

McBride said in an email to the Enterprise that four classes involving 46 students were suspended through Thursday, Nov. 5. Parents were notified by the district’s text messaging system.

She said 18 other classes would continue meeting at the school.
