AUBURN — Two more students have tested positive for COVID-19 at Fairview Elementary, according to school officials. It brings the total to nine.

Because of the outbreak, school officials said Fairview will be closed to in-person learning until the end of Christmas break, school officials said. In-person learning will resume and some students will return to their normal cohort schedule Jan. 4.

Cohort A students, and students in four-days-a-week special education programs will resume in-person learning on that date. Cohort B students will return to in-person learning on Jan. 7.

Auburn schools have already moved all students to remote learning for Thursday because of a coming snowstorm.

Fairview has been hit hard in recent weeks, with seven cases reported within the past 14 days before the additional two cases were reported.
