COVID-19 POSITIVE CASE NOTIFICATION 04-09-2021

April 9, 2021

Dear PLSD Families:

I am writing to inform you that three additional students at the junior/senior high school and one additional staff at the elementary have been confirmed positive for COVID-19 . Through the PA Department of Health contact tracing protocol, those exposed have been notified and quarantined. Please understand that we must wait for positive confirmation from the PA Department of Health and work with them on contact tracing before issuing any communication.

The district will follow PA Department of Health protocols and have a short term building closure at the junior/senior high school and elementary school from Saturday, April 10, 2021, through Sunday, April 11, 2021 for deep cleaning purposes. Only essential employees will be allowed in the buildings during this time. Both schools will open on Monday, April 12, 2021, for in-school instruction.

The health, safety, and well-being of our school community remain our top priority. We are following sound protocols aligned with expert health guidance to ensure we are doing everything we can to protect the health of our students and staff. We also want to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of wearing masks, staying six feet apart from others, regularly washing your hands, and staying home when sick.

All members of our school community are encouraged to continue monitoring for the symptoms of COVID-19 and communicate any concerns with your health care professional and school nurse.

We are closely monitoring this situation and will provide you with updates if any further steps are necessary. In the meantime, I want to thank everyone for following the protocols we have established to minimize risks this school year.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Shawn L. Ford
