Kenmore West High School was shut down Wednesday after school district officials say a student visitor to the building later began showing symptoms of COVID-19.

The Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda School District said the student visited the school on Highland Parkway between 10:42 and 10:48 a.m. Tuesday to retrieve school supplies.

The district on Wednesday was notified that the student is employed at a location where a customer tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

The student, according to the district, has since become symptomatic, is in quarantine and will be tested for COVID-19.

The district has shut down the high school and people will no longer be allowed to retrieve school supplies and other items.

Late Wednesday afternoon the district announced it was closing all school buildings to supply retrieval as a precaution. Holmes, Hoover and Franklin elementary schools will remain open for grab and go meal pickup.
