GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — Superintendent Roger Milton, along with several other employees from across the Gadsden County Public Schools district, are rotating out and filling in to run Stewart Elementary School after the entire administrative staff was quarantined.

Superintendent Milton confirmed to ABC 27 Friday that the entire administration staff at Stewart Elementary is in quarantine.

On Thursday, a clerical staff member tested positive for the virus. Now, six staffers, which included the entire administrative staff at the elementary school, will remain in quarantine until Oct. 1.

This is not the first positive case reported at the school.

Milton said a student at the school tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago, prompting some of the students to go into quarantine.

He said no others should be impacted by the infected staffers or student.
