Dear Families and Staff,
I wanted to provide a weekly update on the number of confirmed cases after Monday’s communication. We have one confirmed high school student that has a confirmed case of COVID. This student was part of our 100% remote learning program and no additional contact tracing was needed at this time. I think it is important to note that we have now seen confirmed cases of Influenza that have many symptoms similar to COVID-19. If your child is experiencing any of these symptoms, please keep them home and contact your provider.
As you know, COVID-19 symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19: fever, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, cough, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, vomiting, or diarrhea. Some people have no symptoms at all. The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
Since the start of our school year, we are pleased to report that none of our positive cases have been transmitted to others members of our learning community on campus. We will maintain our expectations of masking, using the barriers in class, as well as reminding students to wash their hands throughout the day. I want to take a moment to thank our cleaners, teaching staff and bus drivers for ensuring that our students have a safe learning environment each day.
Thank you for your support.
