Hillcrest Middle School Principal Bryan Rickert confirmed that there was a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis in Trumbull, though he did not disclose whether it was a student or staff member, citing privacy laws.
Rickert said that contact tracing began immediately, and any student who came into close contact with the person will be alerted on Wednesday, Sept. 16, while the building has been sanitized by the school’s custodians.
Superintendent Martin Semmel said that the person who tested positive had direct exposure to some members of the school’s community.
“We are working closely with the Trumbull Nursing Department and the Trumbull Health Department to identify anyone who had close contact with the person to determine if they might have been exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19. This is our highest priority when a positive case has been identified.”
The principal noted that anyone who shows any potential symptoms should stay home from school as a precaution and self-monitor. Hillcrest Middle School will remain open after the positive test.
“Don’t panic in this situation,” Rickert said. “Since the spring, we’ve maintained that we’re here for each other, whether it’s students, or family, or the staff at Hillcrest Middle School. We’re not going to panic and safety is our to priority.
“This is a good opportunity to stress the safety protocols that we’ve started since the first day when we stepped foot inside the building, and it’s a chance to reinforce them.”

Jerry Harris, Star Of Netflix Series Cheer, Charged With Producing Child Porn
CHICAGO (CBS) — Jerry Harris, star of the Netflix series “Cheer,” was charged in federal court here with producing child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
On Monday, federal agents raided Harris’ Naperville home.
Harris is considered a breakout star – a fan favorite on the Netflix show “Cheer.” He has more than 1 million Instagram followers.
But the FBI confirmed to CBS 2 it conducted a court-authorized law enforcement action at the house in Naperville where neighbors said Harris now lives.
No one answered the door at the house, but neighbors said they noticed more than six vehicles where Harris’ red Jeep sat parked. USAToday reported earlier this week that the 21-year-old was being investigated for allegedly soliciting sex and explicit videos from minors.
When asked about Harris, a representative of Varsity Sports, one of Harris’ former employers, said they “continue to cooperate with authorities in their inquiries on this matter,” but could not comment further.
Harris is a Bolingbrook native who attended Waubonsie Valley High School.
