This students, faculty and staff that were in close contact with individuals that have been tested positive have been notified and mandated to quarantine at home for 14 days.

We are following CDC guidelines, protocols set by the State Department of Health and our school district, to decrease potential spread.
Should your child/children start exhibiting COVID related symptoms, it is strongly recommended that you contact their primary care physician or the local health department to have them tested immediately.
