We have been informed that one elementary school student, one middle school student, and four high school students are confirmed positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing is complete and close contacts have been informed to quarantine. If you have not been contacted, your child has not been confirmed as a close contact of the individuals, and therefore your child is not required to quarantine. The District is coordinating closely with the local health departments to assure our community's health and safety.
We continue to implement a layered system of multiple mitigation measures to prevent the introduction and spread of viruses and other germs. Current measures include daily health screening, maintaining desks in classrooms at a distance of six feet apart, sanitizing desks surfaces, reducing the number of students in hallways between classes, maintaining students in cohort groups to the extent possible, cleaning frequently touched surfaces multiple times daily, and nightly cleaning of all classrooms, restrooms, and any other areas used by students. We also continue to apply a safe but effective anti-viral “fog” in classrooms every evening to disinfect all surfaces in addition to nightly cleaning.
Please monitor your child for symptoms and keep them at home if they have symptoms listed below and contact your doctor for guidance.
Shortness of breath
Repeated shaking with chills
New loss of taste or smell
We also encourage everyone to practice the 3 Ws:
Wash your hands (with soap and water for at least 20 seconds)
Wear a mask
Watch your distance
We appreciate your support and cooperation. Should you have any questions about this situation, please feel free to contact me at 989-883-2360 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
