Thank you for your patience as we navigate another year of COVID-19 contact tracing. This year has been particularly challenging as it relates to quarantine requirements vs recommendations. In order to streamline and improve the process of notifying families when their student has been identified as a ‘close contact,’starting today our office teams will notify parents/guardians via email, not a phone call. If your student is identified as having an exposure at school, you will receive one of two letters:

 

Recommend to quarantine” (your student was a ‘close contact’ and a quarantine is recommended); or

Notice of close contact” (your student was a ‘close contact’ but a quarantine is not recommended at this time).

 

Our staff will continue to make personal phone calls if your student is required to quarantine. Please continue to check your email for these, and other important school updates. You may review the email address on file using our ParentVue Student Information System.
