Good Afternoon Park 6 Parents & Guardians,
The district finished the sixth week of the school year today. Currently, we have 79 students district-wide in quarantine due to testing positive or being in close contact with a COVID positive individual; last week, this number was 46 students. The breakdown by each school is as follows CHS/HMA - 18, CMS - 31, Eastside - 5, Livingston - 12, and Sunset - 13; no cases have been reported at the rural schools.
As a reminder, close contact exposure with a COVID-positive individual will result in one of the following depending on whether the student is wearing a mask or is fully vaccinated:
An unvaccinated student not wearing a mask will be required to quarantine; or
An unvaccinated student, who is properly wearing a mask that covers the mouth and nose, will not be required to quarantine as long as they remain asymptomatic and continue to wear a mask to school; or
A vaccinated student will be required to wear a mask for 14 days and may remain at school if they remain asymptomatic. (Per CDC Guidelines with proof of vaccination.)
If a student has had COVID within the last 90 days, please consult your school nurse on quarantine guidance.
We continue to encourage students to wear face coverings to school. Please remind your child to be respectful of other’s choices, both to wear or not wear a mask in school. In addition, please continue to keep your child(ren) home if they are sick, this will go a long way in helping us mitigate the spread of this virus. Finally, our goal is to continue in-person instruction and ensure that our sports and activities may continue. Together as a community, we can make this happen.
Have a great weekend,
Tim Foley, Interim Superintendent
