Dear Parents & Guardians, 

We have been notified that a staff member in our district has tested positive for Covid-19. This employee and 3 others are being quarantined at this time due to exposure. We have also received notification of a student testing positive. This student has not been at school and is at no risk to having exposed others at school. If your student is traced as having direct contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID, a school administrator will be reaching out to you by phone. Currently, we are following CDC guidelines, protocols set by the State Department of Health and our school district, to decrease the spread. The individual will not be returning until the quarantine period has been fulfilled or they have a negative test result. 

At this time, school will continue on our regular schedule; we understand the concern for all involved as we move through this together. If your child is experiencing Covid related symptoms or running a fever, please keep them home until they can be tested and released to return to school. It is important to notify the school when you are keeping your child home due to concerns of exposure or other illness so their attendance can be noted correctly. 

We understand this is not the ideal situation for anyone and appreciate your help by staying in communication with the school when you keep your child home due to illness. If you have any questions, please contact one of the administrators listed below: 

Keith Weldon, Superintendent kweldon@alex.k12.ok.us 405-785-2604 

Doug Tolson, HS Principal dctolson@alex.k12.ok.us 405-785-2264
