COVID-19 Health Status & Response Level Update 10/27/21

After considering the health data for Oct 18-24, we experienced an uptick in positive cases for the week. This means we will change to SUBSTANTIAL LEVEL for health protocols for next week 11/1-11/7. Last week, we had 12 positive cases of students or staff with contact tracing not suggesting any school-based spread. Please be mindful that 12 cases remains only 0.69% of our total in-person population of students and staff. We intentionally established conservative thresholds for cases at each level to ensure that we responded proactively and preventatively.
