High school students have been mostly engaged in remote learning since the start of the school year, but some students enrolled in the school's Career Technical Center (CTC) have been participating in on-site learning.

According to the district's website, as of October 13 students from 14 CTC programs have been split into two "cohorts" so they can physically access the school's on-site resources twice a week. All three positive cases are part of the same "cohort," according to the message.

According to the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), 18 new cases of COVID-19 were identified in Strafford County on Wednesday alone.
