Duncan superintendent addresses positive COVID case at school

DUNCAN, Okla. (TNN) - Duncan Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Tom Deighan said a student at the Will Rogers Pre-Kindergarten Center tested positive for the coronavirus over the weekend.

Dr. Deighan said they spent all day on the phone with health department officials working to determine the best solution.

“They chose to quarantine a single classroom. They did however say that because of Duncan Public Schools’ measures of masks and charting where everybody is seated, it enabled us to keep the whole school open. I want parents to know that the masks and everything else that your students and staff are doing are helping keep everyone safe and they’re helping keep everyone in school. I’m very proud of how the staff has handled it, I’m very proud of the support of the parents and the students, at the end of the day masks are enabling us to have school and I think the proof is in the pudding at the moment,” Dr. Deighan said.
