This school year, I will be sharing data regarding school community COVID-19 cases within these weekly community health updates. To date since the start of the pandemic we have had no know transmission of COVID-19 in our schools. Here is the Confirmed Positive COVID-19  Weekly Update Spreadsheet that I will be using to indicate cases. This spreadsheet will also be found on the district website under COVID-19 information. As always, all close contacts of COVID-19 positive individuals will be informed in a separate communication. When a positive case occurs, anyone who is determined to be a close contact is provided with specific instructions regarding testing and quarantining (if there is a need for them to test and quarantine).
