Stonybrook Red Storm Forecast

Week of: March 2nd

Dear Stonybrook Families,

February 28, 2020


Outbreaks of novel virus infections among people are always of public health concern. While the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) considers this to be a serious public health threat, based on current information, the immediate health risk from to the general American public is considered low at this time. That said, we will continue to take proactive preparedness measures as more cases are likely to be identified in the United States.

Our school district is working closely with state and local health departments to review and update emergency preparation plans in the event of a pandemic. Our Operations Department continues to work diligently to ensure a cleanly environment for both students and staff. In the event of a confirmed case in the MSD of Warren Township, appropriate measures would be taken with the guidance of the health department.

It is important to have correct information about the Coronavirus. Click here to access CDC information on the virus.

At this time, the MSD Warren Township will monitor students using normal school procedures to assess symptoms. Patients with confirmed 2019-nCoV infection have reported mild to severe respiratory symptoms, including fever, cough, and shortness of breath. We continue to encourage all student and staff to practice good heath hygiene to prevent the spread of any illness, including viruses. These steps include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick

  • Stay home when you are sick – fever free for 24 hours without use of medication

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
