Enrollment Report and Status of Positive COVID-19 Cases
The dashboard below shows the status of enrollment in each of our learning programs and the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in each school (and the dates of each case). Please see below for information on our notification procedures and a sample notification letter.
The enrollment numbers will be updated monthly. The COVID cases will be updated as new cases arise.
Please remember that the presence of multiple cases does not automatically require us to close a school.
We consult with health officials on every case to determine the best course of action.
District Notification of Positive COVID Cases
The district will notify the parents and staff of a SCHOOL when a positive case is reported.
Below is a sample of a notification letter, which details the actions we take for every report and which lets the school community know if any action is required by them.
If any case were to impact another school and/or the entire district, then a broader or district-wide notification would be sent.
This letter is to inform you that an individual at ______ School has tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The District is coordinating closely with public health officials and following CDC, state, and local health department guidance in order to ensure the health and safety of our community.
There is nothing you need to do at this time. Due to privacy requirements, we will not be releasing any additional information on the identity of the individual. Any person who was determined by health officials to have been a close contact of this individual has already been personally notified. A close contact is someone who was within 6 feet of a confirmed case of COVID-19 for at least 10 minutes.
For full information on our health and safety protocols and procedures, see our Health and Safety Protocols (Page 20 begins the section on our protocols for notification and contact tracing when a case is reported).
Our health and safety protocols also include the cleaning and disinfecting of all exposed areas. The school is also remaining vigilant in the precautions we take to prevent the introduction and spread of viruses and other germs and is cleaning frequently touched surfaces daily.
The health and safety of our students and staff is our first priority. If the facts, circumstances, or impact of any case (or cases) indicate that closing a school (or schools, or district) for any amount of time is necessary, we would not hesitate to do so.
We understand the level of concern regarding COVID-19. We encourage parents and students to continue following the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention promoted safeguards, such as:
- Staying home when you are sick;
- Washing hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds;
- Covering coughs and sneezes and properly disposing of tissues;
- Limiting close contact with people who are sick and not sharing food, drinks and utensils;
- Practicing social distancing (staying at least 6 feet apart);
- Wearing a face covering while in school; and
- Continuing to monitor your health for symptoms.
As always, we appreciate our community’s support and cooperation. You can assist us by remaining vigilant and sensible in your approach to dealing with this health concern. Should you have any questions about this situation, please feel free to contact your school at _______.
