We recently learned of a Kindergarten student who tested positive for COVID-19. Their elementary age sibling is symptomatic as well. They were last on campus this past Friday, and rode the bus to and from school. They are doing well, but please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.
Throughout the day we have worked closely with the Knox County Health Department to conduct contact tracing. All individuals considered close contacts have been notified. In response, our Kindergarten and 2nd grade classrooms will remain full remote until further notice.
We encourage everyone to closely monitor for COVID-19 related symptoms. Symptoms can be as simple as the sniffles or a runny nose. If symptoms arise, please be sure to get tested and remain in communication with us here at school so we can continue to protect the most vulnerable members of our community.
