Lynnfield Schools Delay In-Person Classes Due To Surge In COVID-19 Cases

LYNNFIELD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Like many schools in the country, Lynnfield has been dealing with last minute regarding last minute changes in starting the fall semester.

"I'm concerned that this is the second real surge that Lynnfield has seen since way back in April," Superintendent Kristen Vogel said.

Just before the start of the school year, Lynnfield saw a spike in the number of COVID-19 cases including school-age children.

Vogel said that was reason enough to switch from a hybrid model for learning to completely learning from home.

"Do remote learning for two weeks, from September 16th to September 30th, and will we continue to daily monitor our public health data," Vogel said.

After that, it's still up in the air as to what the data will predict.
