Mesa Verde Elementary school in Farmington will close for in-person instruction from November 10-13 due to recent reports of COVID-19 positive cases.
Saturday, November 7, 2020
Statement from Farmington Schools Superintendent Dr. Eugene Schmidt:
The safety of our staff and students is always our foremost priority which motivated my decision to close Mesa Verde Elementary school to in-person instruction from November 10-13 due to recent reports of COVID-19 positive cases. Pending the report or confirmation of more cases over the next weeks, students and staff should plan to return for At-School learning on November 17. Until then, all instruction will be virtual. This closure adheres to the safety precautions, guidance and best practices for keeping students and staff safe.
Editors Note: Farmington Municipal Schools reported on November 6, 2020, an employee at Mesa Verde Elementary School tested positive for COVID-19.
