Covid-19 Update: Middle School Staff Member Tests Positive

November 14, 2021

Dear Parents, Students, and Staff, 

Our District was informed by the Wayne County Public Health Department today that one middle school staff member has tested positive for COVID-19. We believe that this case of COVID-19 was contracted outside of school. 


We have contacted those families impacted by the positive cases on an individual basis as directed by the Wayne County Public Health Department. The Wayne County Public Health Department will be reaching out directly to those families within 72 hours. No additional actions are required on behalf of the District. 


We ask that medical questions be directed to your family doctor/healthcare provider. Administrators are currently available through email to address your school questions and concerns. 


We cannot stress enough how important it is to continue masking, physical distancing and practicing good hand hygiene. We continue to practice these measures throughout our school day to ensure the safety of all staff and students. By reinforcing these habits at home and in the community we can work together to help contain the spread and keep our school community safe and our buildings open.
