In light of the contact tracing process change that became effective on Monday, January 24 (by the Department of Health), students are no longer being individually contact traced.
This notification is to inform you that your child may be a contact of a positive COVID-19 case based on their class schedule. Every day our custodial teams are performing enhanced cleaning measures throughout our campus – the area(s) related to this case will be sanitized with an additional, powerful disinfectant on top of the existing enhanced clearing measures. Please monitor your child for any symptoms and be sure to reference the district’s COVID-19 Protocols for Students guide – please consider keeping your child home from school if they become ill.
As a reminder, our school has a supply of take-home COVID tests available for symptomatic students – please call the front office for more information. The Department of Health (DOH) is also offering PCR testing for symptomatic staff or students for all public, private, and charter schools in Sarasota County. This testing is available by appointment only. The DOH appointment form – as well as additional information related to COVID-19 – can be found on the district website: www.sarasotacountyschools.net/covid19. Please click the “COVID-19 Testing Site Info” link to go to the DOH form.
The health & safety of our students, teachers, and staff members is a priority, and we appreciate everyone who is taking the time to practice good health habits to keep our school community safe.
If you have any questions, please contact Nurse Katie at 941-426-6100.
