Posted on 02/11/2021

This evening, February 11, 2021, the District learned that an individual in the Jr/Sr High School has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual is now in quarantine and will have to recover and be cleared by the Department of Health before returning to school. 


We continue to work closely with the Washington County Health Department on contact tracing efforts. All individuals known to be in close proximity to this individual will be contacted to discuss any quarantine procedures and other health-related instructions.

 

As of now, the students in the Jr/Sr High School (Grades 6-12) will transition to our remote learning model on Friday, February 12.  The Jr/Sr High School will resume in-person instruction on Monday, February 22, 2021.


The Elementary School (Grades K-5) will remain open for in-person instruction.


The District will perform additional cleaning and disinfection procedures throughout the Jr/Sr High School and will continue our regular cleaning and disinfection procedures as scheduled.


Please note that The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. We cannot identify anyone who has tested positive.

 

Please feel free to contact the District if you have any questions.  

 

Sincerely,

Kevin Froats 

Superintendent of Schools
