The district had 0 staff members and 12 students to test positive this week. In order to ensure the safety of the staff and student body, 0 staff members and 124 students were quarantined.
This is the second week masks have been made optional. We are monitoring COVID-19 cases within the school district to ensure the following positivity rates are not exceeded.
Student positivity: 1%
Staff positivity: 10%
District positivity: 1.5%
Quarantine rate: 7.5%
If any school exceeds the student and staff positivity rate or the quarantine rate, the mask mandate will be reinstated at that school site.
This week Magee High exceeded the positivity percentage. Students and staff will be required to wear masks at this school site as we monitor cases through the remainder of the month and the month of December.
The nursing staff at each school continues to work diligently to ensure all protocols and procedures are being followed.
We will continue to monitor and keep you updated on our progress.
Thank you,
Judith Jones, RN, BSN
