The students were relocated to a different classroom to allow crews to sanitize the space, officials said.

Officials began contact tracing efforts and notified families of students in the affected class, as well as any staff members who were in contact with the teacher.

It is unclear if any students were in contact with the teacher prior to the positive test result Monday morning. The teacher is expected to remain quarantined "until they are medically cleared to do so."
