Notification of COVID case involving transportation provider

The district learned late Wednesday of a positive COVID case involving our transportation provider. The individual was last in contact with students on Friday, Jan. 15.

District leaders worked closely with the health department to supply contact tracing information. Any students or staff members who were considered a close or proximate contact have been contacted by a district administrator to discuss the need to quarantine and other related information. Students in quarantine will receive remote instruction.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict the district from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information and we cannot identify anyone who has tested positive.

All health and safety measures remain fully in effect throughout the district. They include mask wearing, social distancing, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting, and the submission of a daily health screening form.

Please remember that the best plan for addressing the COVID-19 virus is to remain informed and follow these steps to help contain the spread of the virus:

  • Keep at least a 6-foot distance between you and others when out in the community — even if you don’t feel sick or have any symptoms
  • Wear a snug-fitting surgical or cloth face mask that covers your nose and mouth
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Call your healthcare provider in advance of a visit
  • Limit social gatherings

We will continue to work closely with the health department and communicate any necessary updates via ParentSquare and our district website.

Preparing our students for success in tomorrow’s world.
