Health and Safety

The district has moved to following the CDC's 2/22/22 Recommendations. For additional information, please see Dr. Turnamian's 3/4/22 Community Update.

COVID Activity Index Level (CALI): As of 3/26/2022 the district received notification that our region’s CALI score remains Moderate (YELLOW).

Contact Tracing: As of 2/28/22 CDC Guidance, the district will not require contact tracing when transmission rates remain low to moderate. The district will monitor current transmission rates with the guidance of our district medical professionals and local Health Department, and not conduct contact tracing unless circumstances change. Please be aware, if community transmission rates begin to rise, the district will consider restoring former mitigation protocols.

Testing Positive for COVID-19: If a student tests positive for COVID-19 he/she still needs to isolate for 5 days and it is recommended he/she wear a mask for days 6-10. Most importantly, if a student is sick (COVID related or not) please keep him/her home from school.

Close Contact / Quarantine: If an individual is identified as a close contact due to out of school activity or family contact and has not had a primary series of vaccination, it is recommended he/she quarantine for 5 days and wear a mask for days 6-10.

Daily District COVID-19 Communications: Effective 2/8/22 the district will no longer send out daily communications of newly reported COVID-19 cases from each school. This information will continued to be tracked and updated daily to the Information Hub on the main page of our district website.
