(CNN)Almost 30 teenagers have to quarantine after parents sent their child to a Massachusetts school despite knowing they were positive with Covid-19, according to Attleboro Public Schools and the town's mayor.

A Covid-19 positive student attended class on Monday, but the school wasn't notified of their diagnosis until the next day, Attleboro High School superintendent David Sawyer said in a letter sent out to families Tuesday night.
Twenty-eight students who had close contact with the infected person have been notified and asked to quarantine for 14 days, Sawyer said. The school did not identify the student and family.
    Some college towns grapple with Covid-19 after students return for fall semesterAttleboro Mayor Paul Heroux and the superintendent were baffled by the incident, the mayor told CNN. The parents told the city health department that while they found out their child tested positive on September 11, they thought that the child could go to school after quarantining for several days, according to Heroux. "The parents used very poor judgment, it's very frustrating," Heroux said. "The school department did everything they were supposed to do."Read More
      Sawyer told families that the incident was not due to a lack of safety protocol. He said the district's prescreening and contact tracing are in place to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, but ultimately there is no way to completely prevent the spread at school. In a plea to parents, Heroux asked families to keep their children home if they tested positive or are waiting for test results for coronavirus, and to call the school or health department if they have questions.

      Father upset after school sends 9-year-old son home for sneezing, must test negative for COVID-19 to return

      A Boston-area father says his 9-year-old son was sent home from his elementary school after sneezing and was told not to return until he tested negative for COVID-19.

      “I sneezed two times then the teacher told me to go to the nurse,” Lancinet Keita told Boston’s WBZ-TV, adding that he felt fine but was told his father had to pick him up from school anyway.

      “I was thinking I didn’t have anything just a couple sneezes,” Lancinet said.

      “I’ve been so upset about it,” the boy’s father, Thierno Keita, said. “I’m so upset about sending my kid home. He don’t have any symptoms no one and he’s OK. And I checked his temperature everything was perfect. His temperature was OK. It’s OK.”

      The school released a statement about the incident, saying the decision to send the boy home was made out of an abundance of caution.

      “A student at Bishop Elementary School was sent home early today after he displayed COVID-19 related symptoms,” the statement read. “This decision was made both out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with district protocols related to COVID-19. This isolated incident is not indicative of any need for wider concern of COVID-19 exposure. Per district protocols, the student will either have to produce a negative COVID-19 test, written documentation from a health care provider stating it is an alternative illness or be symptom free for 10 days following the start of the symptoms.”

      Sneezing is not listed as a symptom of the coronavirus on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website and is typically associated with allergies and the common cold.
