Change to Length of Quarantine and Middle School Building Project Update
May 9, 2021
I hope you enjoyed the weekend and celebrated the mothers in your lives today. As happens every spring, we are going to be busier than ever and maybe this year we appreciate that since last spring is not that distant of a memory. I share two updates tonight. One update is COVID related and one looks forward.
Change to 7-Day Quarantine
The pattern that we expected after the break has proven true with a reduction to only three cases last week from almost 20 the week before. We have also grown more confident in having all of the kids in school and minimizing the chance of spread. As a result, we will move immediately from the 10-day quarantine protocol to the 7-day protocol. Anyone in quarantine will have the timeline adjusted for a sooner return. It is important to note the details of the 7-day quarantine per the Department of Public Health as outlined below:
7 Days of Strict Quarantine
- Release on Day 8 if:
- A test taken on Day 5 or later is negative AND
- The individual has not experienced any symptoms up to that point AND
- The individual conducts active monitoring through Day 14 and isolates immediately if symptoms develop
Concord Middle School Building Project Update
At their May 6 meeting, the Middle School Building Committee voted a revised space summary that includes enlargements to the gym and auditorium, along with adjustments to other spaces. Information regarding the project can be found on their newly launched website: www.
Have a great night!
