This serves as an informational notice to our school community and DOES NOT mean that you or your child have been exposed to or have come in close or proximate contact with the COVID-19 positive individuals.
While we cannot release information regarding these individuals due to Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA), it is important to note that these people are in isolation, and the ECDOH is conducting contact tracing to identify all individuals who may have been in close or proximate contact with the COVID-19 positive individuals. The ECDOH will directly communicate with any individual who is identified as a close or proximate contact to the positive COVID-19 individuals so that further health and safety measures can be taken. If you are not directly contacted by the ECDOH, the Department has indicated no action is required for you or your child(ren) as it pertains to these positive cases.
The District has taken immediate action to ensure areas occupied by the COVID-19 positive individuals have been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized in accordance with Department of Health and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.
Dr. John E. McKenna
Acting Superintendent of Schools
