April 26, 2021
The District was notified that two Senior High students have tested positive for COVID-19. The students were in school during their infectious period. As a result of the contract tracing efforts, 17 additional staff and/or students need to be quarantined as a result of this case. These positive cases WILL be attributed to the District.
Based on the information above as well as our current case count, we will continue to stay open under the current model. Because the students were contagious prior to April 23, our 3-day time of remote learning and weekend closure allows us to reset our active cases count. See below for the current case numbers at each building as of this morning.
- Senior High - 0 active cases
- Junior High - 0 active cases
- Eisenhower - 0 active cases
- Horace Mann - 0 active case
- Ben Franklin - 0 active cases
- East Pike - 0 active cases
As a reminder, the 14-day clock starts at the onset of symptoms, not when the District is informed of the test results.
As always, the number of confirmed cases can change at any time. We understand the terrible inconvenience a closure causes our families; however, we have a responsibility to make you aware of the possibility. My goal is not to cause panic, rather it is to help make you aware of the current situation in case the District needs to make a change rather quickly.
Mr. Michael J. Vuckovich
