What Our Schools are Doing About COVID-19
The safety of students and staff remain our top priority as the school district continues to offer in-person instruction as an option for local families. Our leadership developed comprehensive safety response plans that guide our daily operations and how we respond to any potential or positive COVID-19 cases in our schools. We are fortunate to have two incredible school nurses – Wendy Perrin and Megan McPhetridge – who monitor and respond to all health concerns in the schools. All decisions about staying open and responding to the virus are made in coordination with the Crook County Health Department and their team of public health experts.
Safety Protocols & Resources
- School nurses will contact families directly if their child has COVID-19 symptoms or is exposed to a student or staff member who tests positive for the virus. Decisions about potential student quarantines will be made by school nurses in conjunction with the Crook County Health Department. If local health officials suspect an outbreak or significant spread of COVID-19, the school district will immediately communicate the situation with families and determine if individual classrooms or entire schools need to be quarantined.
