Public Notification of Positive Test Result - September 17, 2020
On 09/17/20 at 12:00 PM we received notification that an individual associated with the elementary school has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
Anyone who meets the definition of having been exposed to the virus will be contacted by the Perry School District and/or the Lake County General Health District for contact tracing purposes, and may be ordered to quarantine as a result. For the health and well-being of our district and community, we ask that you cooperate with health officials in the contact tracing process. The definition of exposure includes the following:
Within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more
You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19
You had direct physical contact with the person (kissed or hugged them)
You shared items such as eating/drinking utensils
They sneezed, coughed, or somehow got respiratory droplets on you
If your student was in a class or activity with this individual, you will receive a separate notification no later than 24 hours after the time we were notified of the positive result.
We have already begun the cleaning and disinfecting process of exposed areas of our buildings. The safety of our students and staff is our first priority. Do not send your child to school if they display any of the symptoms found on the CDC COVID-19 website.
We will continue to follow the guidance of our local health officials and communicate positive coronavirus diagnosis when they happen with as much information as permitted. In the future, if your child or anyone residing in the household tests positive for COVID-19, please contact our District Nurse, Susan McKoon at 440-259-9600 EXT. 9671 as soon as possible. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please contact your building principal.
