COVID-19 Data

  • Good Afternoon,

    Please see the number of positive COVID-19 tests results reported, aligned to COVID-19 tests taken by staff or students within the past 24 hours for Friday 1/21. Please note, this number reflects NEW CONFIRMED POSITIVES and does not include those quarantining for close contact, or those asked to precautionarily isolate for symptoms without a positive test.  

    As always, if any student or staff member is exhibiting symptoms of illness including, but not limited to, fever (temp 100.4 F and above), chills, uncontrolled new cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell, muscle or body aches, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, fatigue, congestion, or a runny nose please do not attend school and, instead, notify the school nurse, quarantine, and be tested.  

    Please expect a daily email of COVID-19 positive test results every evening.    

    ALSO: Today, the Federal Government has launched a website where you can order at-home tests for your household which will be shipped directly to you. You can order yours here: https://www.covidtests.gov/

COVID-19 Updates

  • January 10, 2022

    Over the past week we distributed over 1,200 COVID-19 home testing kits to our staff and our families. We also distributed N95 masks to staff at each school and to C/O employees. We have more to share. An additional allotment of COVID home testing kits will be handed to school nurses tomorrow to be able to distribute directly to families of sick children who are exhibiting symptoms.

    Please remember that under the new guidance, staff and students who are close contacts of someone who has tested positive, and are fully vaccinated, will not have to quarantine if they are asymptomatic.. Testing guidance will be provided to them.

    Individuals (vaccinated or not) who have tested POSITIVE for COVID-19, and are displaying related symptoms, should immediately isolate for 5 days and can return to work and other activities on day 6 or later provided they have been fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medications for at least 24 hours and other symptoms are improving.

    CDC has advised that some symptoms may persist for weeks or months (such as residual congestion or loss of taste and smell), but the continuing presence of those symptoms need not delay the end of isolation. Staff are expected to report to work after their quarantine period has ended.

    As always, please follow COVID-safety protocols.  Wash your hands frequently, properly wear a face mask (to cover the nose and mouth) - except during schedule mask breaks and when eating, and practice safe social distancing. Staff and students are reminded to wear masks so that they fully cover one’s nose and mouth, except during scheduled mask breaks, when outside for recess, or while eating. Your health and safety are important to us.

    The state’s three strategies for COVID safety include: 1.) vaccines; 2.) mask wearing; and 3.) testing. We are pleased all three are available to our staff and families.
