Senior school students at Bermuda High School for Girls will move to remote learning on Monday.

In a note to parents, head of school Linda Parker said the private school had no Covid-19 positive cases among its staff or student body, but was taking precautions to keep the school community safe ahead of the holidays.

She said all students from Year 7 to IB2 would move to remote learning from Monday through the end of term on Wednesday,

However, the primary school will remain open until the end of term next Wednesday.

She also encouraged students and families to reduce the size of their social bubbles to a few close friends and to avoid parties and large gatherings.

The news came after Carlos Symonds, the principal of Somersfield Academy said yesterday that private schools had had met and agreed to try to stay open for as long as possible.

Students from Year 7 to Year 11 at Saltus Grammar School have begun remote learning while students in SGY1 and 2, the top two years of the school, have been told to quarantine after a student tested positive for coronavirus last week.
