COVID Family Letter - 1/14/21
Date: January 14, 2021
Dear Carey Family members,
This letter is to notify you that 3 students at Carey High School have been determined by the Wyandot County Health Department to be positive COVID-19 cases. We work with Wyandot County Public Health to quickly identify, notify, and inform any students or staff who may have come into close contact with the positive case and who may be at risk of getting sick. By the completion of the day (January 14), school officials have made personal contact with all individuals who were identified as being a close contact. While we are no longer quarantining students due to close contact that happens in the classrooms, we will still be contacting parents by email if your child has been in close contact during class with a positive individual so that the proper precautions can be taken. We ask that you then monitor your child for COVID-like symptoms for 10 days. Students who have been exposed in the lunchroom will be contacted via phone and still be required to quarantine. If you did not receive an email or call from the school health clinic by January 14, 2021, your child was not directly impacted by these positive cases, and no action is required by you.
Please note that if your child has been exposed outside of school, he/she will still be required to quarantine from school and follow the guidance given from the Wyandot County Health Department.
Prevent Further Spread:
The following guidelines will help to prevent further spread of illness at our school:
Notify the school if your child is tested for or diagnosed with COVID-19.
Keep students home if someone in your household is being tested for COVID-19.
Notify the school if your child had contact with someone who you know was diagnosed with COVID-19.
Keep students home from school if they are sick.
Encourage good habits: frequent handwashing, covering coughs and sneezes, use of face coverings in public and staying home as much as possible.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter. If you have questions, please contact your child’s school.
