Clairemont Elementary School-Notice to Parents

March 12, 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians,

With the health and well-being of our students and staff at the forefront of our decisions, I am writing to inform you that an individual in our school community has a probable or confirmed case of COVID-19. Those who have been identified as a "close contact" have received a personal notification with further instructions from the school.

Unless you have been otherwise notified, your child has NOT been identified as a close contact and is not required to quarantine at home or to be tested. A close contact is someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.

In accordance with the Georgia Department of Public Health’s Administrative Order, all students and/or staff who are considered a "close contact" have been notified and will be required to quarantine for 10 days before returning to school.

Appropriate procedures and actions have been taken to clean the affected areas.

Parents should continue to monitor their students each day for symptoms of COVID-19 which could include fever, loss of taste or smell, headache, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, sore throat, fatigue, congestion or runny nose, body aches and/or nausea. If your child develops COVID-19 symptoms, please contact your child’s healthcare provider as soon as possible. Please contact the school if your child tests positive for COVID-19.

Thank you for your support of Clairemont Elementary students and staff. Please contact us at (404) 370-4450 or via email if you have any additional questions or concerns.

Yours in service,

Dr. Curtis Armour, Jr., Principal

Clairemont Elementary School
