Staff Member with Covid-19

STAFF MEMBER POSITIVE FOR COVID-19

December 11, 2020                              

Dear Families and Staff,

The district has learned that a staff member has tested positive for COVID-19.  The staff member is currently in self-quarantine.  Due to federal health privacy laws, information regarding the staff member’s identity cannot be released.  This individual has worked virtually for more than two weeks and has not been in the district or in physical contact with others.  No other personnel, students, or families have been affected by this news.  

Because this staff member has not been in the district, contact tracing is unnecessary.  More information can be found at the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency.  Again, please take social distancing seriously: avoid crowds, stay at home, and maintain at least a six-foot distance from other people.  We will continue to provide updates as we’re able. If changes in your classroom are necessary, you will be notified. 

Thank you for your continued support.  By working together, we will get through these challenging times.  As you know, the well-being of our students, staff, and families is our number one priority.  Please join me in sending healing thoughts to our staff members.

 Sincerely,

 Troy Reehl
