Sumner goes to remote learning



SULLIVAN — Students at Sumner Memorial High School will be using the fully remote learning model for the rest of the week following a case of COVID-19, according to an April 6 letter from Regional School Unit 24 (RSU 24) Superintendent Michael Eastman.

Students will return to in-person learning April 12.

The letter states that an individual tested positive for the coronavirus, which has resulted in seven staff members and 46 students from Sumner and Mountain View School needing to quarantine.

“Our other schools and programs will continue to operate as they have all year long,” the letter reads.
