Active Student/Staff Positive COVID Case Counts

This information is being published to provide transparency for our families, educators and community.  Active cases will be updated daily as needed. A positive case will be reported active for 14 days from the date of the confirmed positive test.  In providing this data, please refrain from speculating, shaming or blaming when a positive case at a school is identified.

A person’s test result is considered private health information and is kept confidential.  Names, grade levels, or any other personally identifiable information will not be shared.  School nurses and the identified COVID Point of Contact (POC) at each school will conduct contact tracing with each positive case.  Notification will be provided to individuals/families who have been exposed to a positive person and asked to quarantine for 14 days.  (Exposure is defined as being closer than six feet for more than 15 minutes.)

We appreciate everyone doing their part to take care of themselves and others by wearing masks, physically distancing, practicing good hand hygiene, and staying home when ill.  By continuing to reinforce these practices, we will be able to keep our schools open and provide a healthy and safe learning environment for all.
