SOURCES: Local teacher fired for exposing students to COVID in classroom


Charlotte, NC (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – Multiple sources including a parent at Bradford Preparatory School in Charlotte say a teacher was fired for exposing more than 20 kids to COVID.

In a letter to parents, which was forwarded to Fox 46, it says the teacher no longer worked at the school as of August 11th, 2021. Fox 46 found on the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services coronavirus dashboard on August 13th, 2021, 25 children in grades kindergarten through sixth had to quarantine because of exposure at school. It’s not clear if any of those kids tested positive.
