Dear Tiger Community,
The district learned on April 23 that one member of the primary school community, as well as one member of the high school community, has tested positive for COVID-19. As always, our first priority is the safety of all of our students, faculty, and staff.
Thanks to our continued focus on strict COVID-19 precautions. All schools will remain open for in-person hybrid learning. We continue to collaborate with county health partners as part of our contact tracing. Parents of students that may have been contacted with these COVID cases will be notified as soon as we can so that they can be supported and our school community remains safe and healthy.
Together, we have implemented 100% mask-wearing in our buildings. In addition, we are keeping classroom windows open as appropriate, and have continued thorough cleaning of our facilities both during the day, as well as at night. Those steps have allowed us to lower the impact of a single positive case.
Those efforts are supported by the data we collect from our health status reporting app, Good2BeBack. It helps us to mitigate the impact of each COVID-19 positive diagnosis. We strongly urge all our students and staff to check in on the app daily. Other ways you can help us keep our doors open to students – wear a mask the entire time you are on campus and on busses. Avoid large gatherings. Avoid unnecessary travel. And visit the Washington County Health Department COVID-19 tracker page daily for updates.
Jon Hunter, Interim Superintendent
