Heritage High School In Littleton has instructed 60 students and five staff members to self-quarantine until Sept. 13 after a student tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to a letter emailed to parents on Sept. 1.

District administrators are working with officials from the Tri-County Health Department to manage the response, according to the letter, signed by Heritage principal Stacey Riendeau and district director of student support services Melissa Cooper.

The affected students and their families have been contacted directly, the letter says. The students will transition to online learning through Sept. 13.

The school is undergoing deep-cleaning procedures, according to the letter, including removing and replacing HVAC filters and running ventilation systems overnight.

“Thank you for your understanding, patience, and continued partnership as we all work together to keep our students, staff, and families healthy and safe,” the letter reads in part.
