COVID-19 Positive Case Communication

The health and safety of our school community will always be our primary concern. We promise to share pertinent health information with our school families, and we need you to do the same for us!

YOUR ROLE AS PARENTS:

  1. The School MUST be notified if there is a positive COVID-19 case in a student’s primary residence. The School MUST be notified within 24 hours of positive diagnosis.
    1. See “Notify Attendance” below
  • Keep your child/children home if:
