A student from Kings Langley Secondary School has tested positive for the Covid-19 coronavirus.
The student is a key stage three pupil, which covers years seven to nine.
The school sent out a letter to parents on March 18, declaring they decided to partially close the school. This was before the government announced the closure of all schools in the UK.
The letter by headteacher David Fisher read: “Today like other schools, we have had our first confirmed case of the virus.
“We have a duty to inform you that you and your children may had inadvertently been in contact with someone who has coronavirus.
“We complete a deep clean of the school every day which obviously limits the spread of the virus and have consulted with Public Health England.
“We have a number of staff who fit into the newly defined vulnerable group including those who are pregnant, and other who we feel should not be working in school until told otherwise due to health complications.”
The school also said it has been working closely with Hertfordshire County Council and Public Health England.
The letter read: “We will do our best to set work for the classes through Show My Homework. As a school please be patient with staff, staff who are in school will most likely be covering for absent colleagues.
