Fowler USD #225
October 2020 Newsletter
What happens when there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the school?
If a USD 225 staff member or student tests positive for COVID-19 and has been at work or school within 48 hours of developing symptoms or being diagnosed (whichever occurs first), the Meade County Health Department will notify the school officials immediately and determine who has been in “close contact” and must be quarantined for 14 days. They are the official contract tracer for the district.
Whether or not an entire class is required to quarantine will depend upon the degree of separation consistently maintained between staff and students in a particular classroom or activity. The Meade County Health Department will be the entity to make all notifications. Secondary contacts (those living in the house or in close contact with those quarantined but not testing positive) will NOT be ordered to quarantine and may continue to attend school/work.
Unless there is a widespread issue, communication regarding exposure will be done by the Meade County Health Department. If you hear of an exposure and you are not contacted by the Meade County Health Department, you should assume that you or your child/student have not been exposed or ordered to quarantine.
Guidelines for attendance at USD 225 activities:

The USDA and KSDE have extended the summer food service program for Kansas schools. USD 225 has accepted this waiver and will operate on this program until December 31, 2020 or until funding runs out. This means that students enrolled in Fowler Schools can receive free breakfast and lunch each day. Once this special funding is eliminated, the district will transition back to our regular School Nutrition Program, and meals will be charged accordingly. Please remember to have an updated free/reduced meal application on file with the district.
