A MESSAGE FROM THE HEADMASTER
I want to follow up on the email that was sent yesterday regarding a student testing positive for COVID. Our intention is to keep our families informed by being as forthcoming as possible with information that would affect our school community.
The school was notified on Wednesday, October 14, that a high school student tested positive for COVID. The student was not in school while presenting any symptoms or waiting for test results. He was exhibiting some COVID symptoms at home on Saturday, October 10. He went for a COVID test on Monday, October 12, and received a positive test result on Wednesday, October 14. The family immediately notified the school.
Per the following guidelines, https://pvcama.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/protocols.docx we identified students that were in close contact with the student. Those students were immediately quarantined from other students, parents were notified, and students were sent home. Parents of the close contact students have been asked to keep the students self-quarantined through Sunday, October 25, receive a COVID test, and be symptom free for twenty-four hours. The PVCA nurse will be monitoring symptoms and test results while the students are in quarantine.
We are asking that all faculty, staff, students, and families monitor their health and communicate any concerns with the school nurse. If your child is exhibiting any of the symptoms listed in the checklist, https://pvcama.org/ready-for-school-checklist/ please do not send him/her to school. Keep him/her home until symptoms subside, call your physician, and follow his/her recommendations. We are a community and we need to work together to keep our population safe.
Please continue to pray for our school, families, teachers, faculty, staff, and students. We rest on the assurance that God is in control and we continue to trust Him.
