I am writing to share an update on COVID cases. The COVID Data Dashboard is up to date as of this afternoon. You will see that we have nine cases at Willard so far this week. Seven of those are in the same classroom. I spoke to local health officials who are in touch with the Department of Public Health and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. As we move to the endemic phase of the pandemic, there is no remote option available, as we have noted before, meaning all classrooms will remain open. We are providing additional regular antigen testing and are masking in that classroom.
Please also remember to keep also symptomatic children at home. In addition to testing for COVID, we are noting a marked increase in flu cases, some of which are also happening in clusters.
Thank you for your support. Enjoy the beautiful night!
