To: Staff, Students, Parents, School – Community Members Fr: Kevin Smith, Superintendent Su: Important Health Statement – Clarification
The school corporation was notified on Sunday evening, August 16, 2020, concerning a student exhibiting symptoms of COVID – 19. Earlier today we were made aware of another student with possible symptoms. Following each notification contact tracing was initiated.
The families of those children with close exposure to the possible cases have been contacted. With the information currently at hand, and in keeping with our reentry plan and protocol, individuals with close exposure will be expected to quarantine for 14 days. If you have not been notified, your child has not been identified as a high risk of exposure and does not need to quarantine.
In conjunction, all middle school athletic practices have been suspended until further notice.
The school corporation is working closely with the Fountain/Warren County Health Department on all COVID-19 related situations.
Please know that the school corporation is doing everything possible to ensure our school buildings have the best opportunity to remain open for student instruction.
