COVID-19 Information, Reporting & Daily Tracker

To keep COVID-19 cases to a minimum, please check your child for symptoms before coming to school each day. Additionally, if you or your child are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or have come in close contact with someone who has experienced symptoms, please stay home and seek guidance from a primary health care provider.

If you, your child, or anyone in your household are awaiting results from a COVID-19 test, please do not have your child come to school until test results are received and/or you hear guidance from either our District Nurse or the Lake County General Health District.

If your child, or anyone residing in your household, test positive for COVID-19, please contact our District Nurse, Heidi Perry, at 440.358.8304 as soon as possible.  
 
Each COVID-19 positive case we are made aware of is investigated by our District Nurse (Heidi Perry) as well as a public health official from the Lake County General Health District. As part of this public health investigation:

  • The person diagnosed is kept home from school until they are no longer infectious. 
  • The person’s activities when they could have spread COVID-19 is assessed. 
  • Identified close contacts will be contacted individually by a school nurse to discuss latest quarantine guidelines. 
If anyone contacts you as part of a COVID-19 investigation, please cooperate fully to ensure the safety and health of our entire school building and community.
