Late yesterday evening we were notified that a school employee has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee is asymptomatic. School leaders immediately notified the Ross County Health District and we are again working with them closely and following their guidance.
Because of protocols established at the school, 3 additional staff and 4 students will be quarantining as they were in close contact. These staff and the families of the students have been contacted by us directly and the health department will reach out to them as part of COVID-19/contact tracing. Because the number of people in close contact was limited, we are not initiating a school closure at this time. We will be sending home a letter with all students with this information.
