Two Lynbrook schools to close Oct. 29 for contact tracing


West End Elementary School and North Middle School in the Lynbrook District will close on Thursday, Oct. 29, for in-person classes and switch to remote learning so personnel can conduct contact tracing.

Three West End students and one North student have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Dr. Melissa Burak, the district superintendent.

Calls went out to parents on Wednesday afternoon, and a notice was posted on the Lynbrook district's website, at lynbrookschools.org.
