Two COVID-19 cases were reported at Chittenden County schools over the holiday weekend, one at Williston Central School and the other at South Burlington High.

Champlain Valley School District officials on Sunday reported a case at the Central School, which serves about 600 students in grades 3-8.

South Burlington administrators said Monday that they learned on Saturday that a student had tested positive for the virus. The school serves about 900 students.

Williston Central School and South Burlington High, both of which are using a hybrid learning system, will remain open for in-person instruction, according to district officials.

“While we certainly hoped that we would remain COVID-free, we expected this eventuality and we are prepared with a plan to respond to it,” Superintendent Elaine Pinckney wrote in a message to Williston families.
