District, Local, and State COVID-19 Trend Information
Effective October 29, 2020, the District transitioned from waiting for a relevant health department to confirm a self-reported case to accepting a valid lab report in order to report publicly on any self-reported cases. The health department must still conduct their investigation, but it allows us to notify our school communities, staff and families earlier in the process. As valid lab reports are produced and/or the health department provides additional information, District data will be updated to reflect the appropriate week of reporting.
Our procedure of requiring anyone identified as a close contact to quarantine immediately upon receiving a submission of a report has not changed. Since the reopening of schools, anytime a case of COVID was self-reported, the District immediately sent staff or students identified as close contacts home to quarantine until the case was confirmed (or found to be false) by the relevant health department.
Below is information about self-reported COVID-19 positive cases for staff and students for the past four (4) weeks. Cases are listed for the week they were reported to the District. Previous data from earlier weeks can be downloaded and viewed under the Key Links and Documents section below.
