The school district was notified that a district employee and a staff member at DUES who has been absent from work since early last week have tested positive or are presumed positive for COVID-19. See the attached public notification. The State Department of Health is in charge of the contact investigations.
There will be no student quarantines as a result of contact with students in the district.
Please don't call the school, as the school will not have information that can be shared regarding the positive cases. The district will be as transparent as possible while protecting the privacy of our staff and students. Schools are taking all required precautions to mitigate the spread of coronavirus. We urge everyone in our community to follow health and safety guidelines.
Families, please continue to be vigilant in screening students at home and monitoring students' health. Please keep your kids home if not feeling well. Also, it’s important during this time to support those who are ill and those in quarantine. Let’s stick together as a community. Thanks so much for your cooperation and partnership.
You can find the updated procedure the district follows in the case of a positive COVID case on the district website.
