Massachusetts officials are reporting 523 new positive coronavirus cases among students and 407 new cases among staff at public school districts across the Bay state.

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released its weekly report Thursday on COVID-19 in schools, which only reflects confirmed coronavirus cases reported by districts to state officials between Jan. 7 and Jan. 13. Being more than three and a half months since the state began releasing the data, this week’s new report brings the combined total of cases among students to 4,231 and 3,179 among staff.

The data reflects cases reported at charter schools, collaboratives, and approved special education schools, though it excludes any COVID-19 diagnoses for students learning in fully remote models. The numbers also exclude any diagnoses for “staff that have not been in district buildings during the seven days prior to the report of the positive case.”

According to the state, the districts reporting more than 10 cases include:

Boston (2 among students and 10 among staff), Braintree (13 among students and 7 among staff), Dracut (15 among students and 3 among staff), Duxbury (12 among students), Fairhaven (13 among students and 1 among staff), Fall River (10 among students and 17 among staff), Gloucester (7 among students and 5 among staff), Marlborough (12 among students), Milton (20 among students and 4 among staff), Natick (6 among students and 6 among staff), New Bedford (1 among students and 24 among staff), Plymouth (14 among students), Quincy (7 among students and 7 among staff), Walpole (12 among students and 1 among staff), Wellesley (10 among students and 1 among staff), Westwood (9 among students and 4 among staff), Winchester (8 among students and 4 among staff), Winthrop (14 among students and 4 among staff), and Essex North Shore Agricultural and Technical School District (11 among students). 

The Lawrence Family Development Charter School also reported 15 positive cases among students.
