Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our school district was notified this morning that there is a single positive test result of Covid-19 in one of our 1st Grade classrooms in Artman Elementary. We are pleased to share that the person is currently healthy and asymptomatic. In response to the positive result, all students within the classroom and the teacher will be asked to quarantine starting this morning and will be educated by the classroom teacher online. The quarantine applies only to those who were in the classroom. Secondary contacts (siblings) do not need to quarantine. The first grade students and teacher will be able to return on Monday, October 5, 2020, based on Department of Health guidelines.
The Department of Health recommends that we all continue to monitor our children and ourselves for symptoms. If you are experiencing symptoms, please see your Primary Care Physician who can make the determination if you or your child need to be tested.
At this point, all remaining classrooms and other activities in the district will continue as scheduled.
Daniel J. Bell, Ed.D.
