Parent Letter October 19th - COVID Case



October 19, 2020
 
 
Dear Trojan Parents/Guardians, Students, and Community,
 
The intent of this communication is to notify our school community of a recent Covid-19 situation involving our school district family.
 
We found out today that a student at the HS has tested positive for COVID-19.  The last day this student was in school was Tuesday, October 13th.  The Department of Health has been notified.  At the direction of the Department of Health, we have notified all close contacts in this case and the close contacts will be quarantining at home until October 28th.   Based on conversations with the Department of Health and local health professionals, we have decided to provide remote learning to all close contacts.
 
Our goal is to provide in-person learning for the rest of the students within our district, while taking the necessary steps to ensure everyone’s health and safety.  We will still be providing transportation to our NTCC students even during our school-wide remote learning day on Friday, October 23rd.
 
Please know that protocols are in place to keep all students and staff as safe as possible.  Our facilities are cleaned daily, including high touch and high traffic areas.  We ask that parents continue to screen children daily before coming to school and keep them home if they are sick.  If you have any COVID-19 related questions or concerns please call our building nurses, and they can assist you.
 
As a community, the key to our success is to continue working together as we strive to keep our students, faculty, and staff safe and healthy.  Thank-you for working with us as we navigate through this pandemic together.   
 
Sincerely,
 

 
Dr. Eric T. Stair
Superintendent
