NEW YORK CITY (WABC) – A school on Staten Island is completely secluded for 10 days amid an increase in COVID-19 cases.

PS62, the Kathleen Grimm School of Leadership and Sustainability at Sandy Ground, is the fifth public school to be forced to cancel all personal classes due to coronavirus cases.

The school in the Rossville section will be closed through Monday, December 13th.

The school reported five full classroom closures and eight partial classroom closures.

Still, a spokesman for the Ministry of Education said the low number of school closures shows the system is working.
