Dear Parents and Guardians,
The District has learned that a member of the audience at last week’s Band performance was confirmed positive for Covid-19. Furthermore, as a result of contact tracing, and in order to slow any more spread of COVID-19, we will be suspending all activities related to Middle School Band and Middle School Girls Basketball. The students affected will continue to learn virtually, unless proof of vaccination has been submitted. The affected students’ quarantine ends on Thursday, December 23, 2021, and students can return to in-person class on Monday, January 3rd. We are monitoring all other programs and will take all appropriate action if necessary.
A letter was sent home with all affected students and parents were contacted as well. To be clear, anyone who has had potential close contact exposure has already received communication from the school. If you have not received any direct communication from school personnel, then the only action you should take is to continue to watch for symptoms.
If you or your family were in attendance at last week's band performance, we encourage you to watch for any symptoms and take all appropriate precautions. Rest assured that safety is our top priority and will help guide our decisions in attempting to safeguard in-person instruction.
Stephen J. Rodriguez
Superintendent of Schools
