SWANZEY CENTER — Monadnock Regional Middle/High School will be closed Monday following the death of a district staff member, school officials confirmed Sunday night.

The district is not releasing the staff member's name at this time, said Principal Lisa Spencer. In an email statement issued Monday morning, Superintendent Lisa Witte said that the situation does not appear to be related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"More information will be provided as soon as possible as we work with the employee’s family to respect their wishes and privacy," Witte said in the statement.

Classes are still being held Monday for the district's elementary school students.
