Health and Safety Plan Update - August 30, 2021

Covid-19 Update

Today we were able to confirm 4 positive Covid-19 cases at the Secondary Complex with exposure occurring prior to our mandatory mask implementation on Friday, August 27, 2021.   Contact tracing is complete and all students and families have been notified.  Because these exposures occurred prior to our mask mandate, we have an additional 25 students who will need to quarantine. 

Conversely, we were able to confirm 1 positive Covid-19 case today at the Secondary Complex with exposure occurring after our mask mandate was implemented.  Because any exposures occurred within framework of the DOH quarantine guidelines, no additional students are required to quarantine.

Quarantine Update

Currently, we have a total of 36 students in quarantine at the secondary complex.  We have a total of over 34 students in quarantine at our 3 elementary schools.  Over the next few days, students who were placed in quarantine due to exposure last week may be returning to their respective campuses with proof of a negative Covid-19 test.  Please be assured our health and safety team is ensuring our students are compliant with DOH quarantine guidelines prior to approved return.  Attempts to return to campus prior to the conclusion of quarantine will be referred to building administration.

We are grateful to our faculty, staff, and community for their support and understanding as we adapt and adjust our practices and procedures.

Thank you,

Donald Wheeler
