November 17, 2020 Dear Parents/Guardians: We have been informed that a staff member at USA Elementary has tested positive for COVID-19. The District is coordinating closely with the Tuscola County Health Department to assure our community's health and safety. We performed contact tracing with the assistance of the Tuscola County Health Department and determined that there were no students in close contact with the staff member while they were contagious. Fortunately, no students will be required to quarantine as our mitigation efforts include avoiding close contact between staff and students. We continue to take daily precautions to prevent the introduction and spread of viruses and other germs. This includes cleaning frequently touched surfaces multiple times daily and nightly cleaning of all classrooms, restrooms, and any other areas used by students. We also apply a disinfectant “fog” in the areas where any student or staff member with symptoms has been during the day. 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

Dear Patriot Parents and Guardians, Please be advised that a staff member at USA Elementary school has been identified as probable positive for COVID-19. As of this afternoon, no staff or students have been identified as close contacts and there is no need to quarantine as a result of the probable positive case. An employee at the USA Early Childhood Care Center has tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing was completed and the toddler room is closed while staff and children who were in close contact (within approximately 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes during a 24 hour period) are in quarantine. Unless you have been contacted by a representative from the Tuscola County Health Department, there is no reason for you to be alarmed. The Health Department is working very aggressively on this issue. Because we have a very cooperative working relationship with the health department, those who may be at risk will be notified very quickly and be given very specific instructions on what to do. With the current resurgence of positive tests in the area, we are urging everyone to continue to practice social distancing and follow all other preventative measures. Thank you for your time and your much-needed and anticipated cooperation.

November 6, 2020 Dear Parents/Guardians: This afternoon we were informed that a student at USA High School is “probable positive” for COVID-19. The District is coordinating closely with the Tuscola County Health Department to assure our community's health and safety. We have performed contact tracing with the assistance of the Tuscola County Health Department and identified all close contacts. Those families have been contacted with instructions to quarantine. Students were not in close contact with the contagious individual during the school day. If you have not been contacted, your child is not a close contact with the individual, and therefore your child is not required to quarantine. We continue to take daily precautions to prevent the introduction and spread of viruses and other germs. This includes cleaning frequently touched surfaces multiple times daily and nightly cleaning of all classrooms, restrooms, and any other areas used by students. The status of this situation is fluid, and we are monitoring it closely. 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.
