Coronavirus Information

Information regarding the Coronavirus

 

In response to growing national concern about the Coronavirus, this message is to provide our families with important updates and information.

 

Ohio is currently identified as a “Low Risk” state, with a total of 7 negative tests having been performed, and no confirmed cases as of 3/3/20.

  

The school district will be following its emergency operations plan, in close consultation with the Lake County General Health District, to make operational decisions should a case of Coronavirus be identified.

  

At this time, the district is following the direction of the Ohio Department of Health, to ensure thorough cleaning and disinfecting of buildings and busses, with frequent cleaning of “high touch” areas (doorknobs, railings, etc.).

 

Additionally (as advised by the Department of Health), we are emphasizing “universal precaution” measures with students and families. These are: 

  • Wash your hands often with water and soap (for 20 seconds or longer)
  • Stay home if sick, and avoid contact with people who are sick
  • Get adequate sleep and proper nutrition
  • Cover your mouth with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
  • Avoid touching your nose, eyes, and mouth

Additional information is available at www.odh.ohio.gov/coronavirus and https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019 novel coronavirus /summary.html 


Should conditions change, the district will provide additional updates. We seek to promote the health and well-being of our students first, and we appreciate your support in these efforts.
