Last night we received confirmation from a teacher/coach that they had received a positive test for COVID-19. We notified staff and parents connected to 2 Pods in these 4th grade classrooms that have been impacted by this exposure. Additionally, we have quarantined the 8th grade Volleyball team and notified their opponents of the upcoming games of those postponements. Those that have been exposed or considered in close contact will be quarantined for 14 days.
In our efforts to remain as transparent as we can be, we have added a data tracking tool to view current numbers on our district website as we anticipate continued exposures within the district: https://www.oelweinschools.com/covid-19/
Learning opportunities for all 31 students quarantined will be made available virtually until they are able to return to school.
The names of those involved will not be shared to protect their privacy. We continue to appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding throughout this process.
