Dear CUSD #20 Families and Staff:
As the second semester resumes, it is apparent that COVID-19 continues to cause concern for our District. Unfortunately, CUSD #20 has had six positive COVID-19 tests amongst the staff and another four confirmed cases with our students. These individuals have been quarantined along with other staff and students that were determined to be in close contact with a positive case. These cases are not limited to one setting. All three of our schools have individuals that have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus and quarantined since school resumed on January 5th.
At this time, the Lawrence County Health Department and CUSD #20 school nurses have been in contact with all individuals affected by this most recent outbreak of positive cases. We ask that all parents and guardians monitor their child(ren) for symptoms.
The health and safety of our students and staff is our highest priority, and we recognize the uncertainty and concern regarding the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. We are following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the state and local health departments that outline best practices and procedures in order to protect everyone’s health.
As always, individuals should closely monitor their health. If symptoms develop, please stay home and contact your healthcare provider to determine if testing is needed. Anyone who develops severe symptoms should seek medical care immediately. If your child has had close contact with a known case of COVID-19, keep your child at home and notify your primary healthcare provider, school, daycare, and local health department.
We are committed to providing our students and our staff with a safe and healthy learning environment. As always, thank you for your ongoing cooperation and understanding regarding our COVID-19 prevention policies and procedures as we remain steadfast in our commitment to protect your children and family as well as our staff and their families.
CUSD #20 Superintendent
