Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

A student or staff member attending the Holyoke Jr/Sr High School has been diagnosed and tested positive with COVID-19. Each case of COVID-19 is interviewed by public health. As part of this public health investigation:

  • The person diagnosed is being kept home from school until they are no longer infectious. 

  • The person’s activities when they could have spread COVID-19 were assessed. 

  • The people who were close contacts of the person with COVID-19 are instructed to stay home from school for 14 days after the exposure. This is called quarantine. 

Because it is impossible to assess all interactions in a classroom and because of the length of time which classes spend together, all classroom members within six feet for more than fifteen minutes are considered close contacts.  Students and staff considered as close contacts and their parents have been notified by the administration that they are asked to quarantine for 14 days and will not be allowed on campus or allowed to attend any school functions during these 14 days.  At this time Holyoke Elementary School students and staff are not affected by this one positive COVID case and will continue to operate as normal. 

If you have further questions, please contact Mr. Stumpf, or your local public health agency.

Estimados padres,

Un estudiante o miembro del personal en el salón de clases de la escuela secundaria ha sido diagnosticado con el COVID-19. El organismo de salud pública entrevista a cada persona contagiada con el COVID-19. Como parte de esta investigación de salud pública:

  • La persona diagnosticada debe quedarse en casa y no asistir a la escuela hasta que ya no pueda contagiar a los demás.

  • Se evaluaron las actividades de la persona en las que podría haber propagado el COVID-19.

  •  Se les indicó a las personas que tuvieron contacto cercano con la persona contagiada con el COVID-19 que se queden en casa y que no asistan a la escuela durante los 14 días después de la exposición. Este periodo se denomina cuarentena.

Ya que es imposible evaluar todas las interacciones dentro del salón de clases y debido a la cantidad de tiempo que los estudiantes y maestros pasan juntos, todos los miembros de un salón de clases se consideran contactos cercanos.  Su hijo estuvo en el mismo salón de clases o grupo de una persona diagnosticada con el COVID-19, por lo tanto, su hijo deberá cumplir con las instrucciones de hacer cuarentena y quedarse en casa durante 14 días. En este momento los estudiantes de la escuela primaria y los que trabajan en la escuela primaria no están efectuados y pueden seguir normalmente.
