Dear Parents & Guardians,
As an administrative team we want to do our best to keep you informed of your child’s exposure to COVID. We want to assure you that if your child has been in direct contact with someone who has tested positive, you will be contacted by phone. At this time, students in the preK classroom were in the same room as a staff member that has tested positive. This staff member was last in class with these children on Wednesday, September 16, 2020. However, based on CDC guidelines and those of the state department of health, your child was not within 6 feet of the individual for 15 minutes or longer, therefore does not need to quarantine. If you feel it is in your child’s best interest to quarantine, please reach out to the child’s principal to make plans for classwork, etc.
We are doing our best to be as open as the law will allow and communicate with the community as changes occur. If your student is traced as having direct contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID, a school employee 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. These individuals will not be returning until the quarantine period has been fulfilled.
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:
