Community Information Regarding a Current Case of COVID-19

July 31, 2020 -  The district was made aware earlier this week that a student athlete was exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19.  Any program that may have been in contact with the athlete was put on hold for the remainder of the week.  The test results, confirming that individual was positive, were obtained on Friday afternoon.  The District immediately contacted the Department of Health (DOH) and started working through the contact tracing process.  All families of children that were in contact with the individual were called personally. The DOH informed us that individuals that were in contact with the individual within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes should self-quarantine for 14 days.  For those that were were not in close contact, they advise that families/individuals monitor for symptoms and call their physician if symptoms should arise.  We are currently waiting on further information from the DOH about how we should proceed.  In the meantime, football will be shut down until further notice.  Other summer programs will continue to run, with the utmost attention given to social distancing and face mask requirements.  If you have a question, please contact the District Office by dialing 724-397-5551 or click on "Have a Question" under the COVID Info tab.
