The superintendent’s letter did not disclose a specific number of students or staff that the positive student had been in contact with, however, stated “any close contacts have already been notified and are also required to quarantine.”

Per the district’s restart and recovery plan, members of the school community will be notified of any positive COVID-19 cases among students or staff.

“Please be aware, our plan was designed anticipating that cases would sporadically arise and that, when they do, the number of school community members affected and the impact on the District is minimized,” the letter states.
