BROWNSBURG — At least 11 people have tested positive for COVID-19 and 188 people are quarantined in Brownsburg Community Schools after the first week of school, according to the superintendent.

Superintendent Jim Snapp presented the data at the school board meeting Monday evening and said the district is still focused on keeping students safe.

The district returned to school on July 29 with masks optional. In a letter sent to families, Snapp said masks are still optional, but the school board is revisiting the data and will adjust the plan if needed.

"Please know our approach is not political; we don’t have an agenda—we are just doing our very best," Snapp said. "We will continue to do our best to communicate promptly as new information becomes available to us."
