COVID-19 Update (04/22/2021)

Superintendent’s Message – April 9, 2021

With our high school students returning to campus this week, we are now “All In.” Yay! This seems a good time to remind folks about screening protocols and to clarify when the district will notify families of COVID cases.

Please remember to screen your scholars every morning before sending/bringing them to school using the Can My Child Go to School Document. The screening questions are attached. Sometimes it is difficult to differentiate between symptoms of COVID and symptoms of allergies or a spring cold. When in doubt, please keep your scholar(s) home until they are symptom-free.

Some parents and patrons have heard that students and staff have missed school, and asked when they will be notified about positive cases. To date, we have had no positive cases; quarantines have been the result of having been in close contact with a positive case (usually a household member). If/when we do have a positive case, those who have been in close contact will be notified (and quarantined). Oregon Health Authority guidance clearly outlines these procedures, and also makes it clear that we neither quarantine nor notify when a student or staff member has had contact with a contact (two steps removed from a positive case).

Some other reminders from Multnomah County Health:

Wear a close-fitting, multi-layered mask when interacting with those outside your household.

Wash hands often.

Cover coughs and sneezes.

Minimize time spent with those outside your extended family and small social group.
