Dear Parents/Guardians: 

Yesterday the health department informed us that a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. We continue to complete contact tracing and will be notifying parents of any close contacts who may need to quarantine. The District is working with the county health departments to assure our community's health and safety. 

Our staff is working diligently to prevent the introduction and spread of viruses and other germs. This includes daily health screening, cleaning frequently touched surfaces multiple times daily, and nightly cleaning of all classrooms, restrooms, and other areas used by students.  We also continue to apply a safe effective anti-viral “fog” in classrooms every evening to disinfect all surfaces in addition to regular nightly cleaning. 

We understand the level of concern regarding COVID-19. We encourage parents and students to continue following the public health recommendations: 

• Staying home when you are sick

• Practice the 3 Ws:

  • Wash your hands (with soap and water for at least 20 seconds)

  • Wear a mask

  • Watch your distance

• Covering coughs and sneezes and properly disposing of tissues

• Continue to socialize responsibly – limit gatherings outside your household

• Continuing to monitor your health for symptoms

We appreciate your support and cooperation. You can assist us by remaining vigilant but sensible in your approach to dealing with this health concern. Should you have any questions about this situation, please feel free to contact me at 989-883-2360 or by email at 

Educationally yours, 

George Rierson, Superintendent 

Unionville-Sebewaing Area School District
