Positive COVID Cases and COVID Reminders
September 2, 2021
I am sharing information about two positive cases today and other reminders about pool testing and vaccination documentation.
Two Positive COVID Cases
Today we learned about a positive student at Willard and a positive student at Thoreau. We completed contact tracing and appropriate quarantines. As a reminder, we are now using the 7-day quarantine protocol which will reduce the time out of school.
Pooled Testing Consent
Please continue to enroll in pooled testing. An important new piece of the process is that two swabs will be collected at the time of testing. One will be held so that if a pool is positive it is automatically sent for individual processing. Families will not have to do the second test on their own like last year or risk incurring cost. We are still waiting for CIC Health to enroll the students at Ripley and apologize for the delay.
Thank you! Please continue to submit vaccine documents to these email addresses and include the child’s grade level for the 2021-2022 school year.
Thank you for a great start to the school year!
