November 11, 2020 Dear Parents & Guardians, As an administrative team we want to do our best to keep you informed of your child’s exposure to Covid. Thankfully, things seem to have settled down quite a bit since we were first hit with positive cases in our community. 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. If you have not received a phone call, your child has not been within 6 feet of a positive case. At this time, we have five students quarantined due to positive cases or exposure and zero staff members in quarantine. Again, if your child was in direct contact with any positive cases, you will be contacted by phone. Please remember to mask up, wash your hands and maintain social distancing practices as often as possible. 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: Keith Weldon, Superintendent email@example.com 405-785-2604 Doug Tolson, HS Principal firstname.lastname@example.org 405-785-2264 Nicole Bauman, ES Principal email@example.com 405-785-2217 Amy Loggins, Operations firstname.lastname@example.org 405-785-2264 Sincerely, Alex Administrative Team
