The school district was notified that a district employee and a student at DHS have tested positive for COVID-19. See the attached public notification.
Because of following safety protocols in district facilities and staying home when sick, there will be no quarantines of students or staff as a result of these positive cases.
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.
