Critical Notifications Lunenburg/Gilman
3rd Grade To Remain In Remote Learning, Week of April 5th - April 9th
April 3, 2021
Dear Parents and Caregivers of Lunenburg’s 3rd grade class:
This message is to let you know that contact tracing has been completed for the positive case in the Lunenburg cohort and all individuals determined to be close contacts have been notified.
We have made the determination that the entire 3rd grade will remain in remote learning for the week of April 5th through 9th.
The following week is April break, and all members of the community can return to full in person schooling on Monday April 19th.
Thank you to the third grade parents for your patience, cooperation and flexibility with this situation. I appreciate everyone’s efforts to pivot to remote learning.
RE: positive COVID CASE
April 3, 2021
Dear Lunenburg Community Members,
There was a reported positive COVID case in the Lunenburg learning community. The Department of Health and our COVID Coordinator are reaching out to folks who may have been impacted by this positive case. If you receive a phone call please answer the phone and share information.
The department of health will reach out to a small number of students, faculty and staff in the 3rd grade who are determined to be “close contacts” with the reported positive COVID test. These individuals will be required to quarantine for two weeks from the time of the last contact.
The entire 3rd grade class (students, faculty and staff) will engage in remote learning until Monday, April 19th (the week of April 12th - April 16th is spring vacation).
Because we separate classes by cohort within Lunenburg School, we isolate sub-groups within our in-person community. The rest of the school (except 3rd grade) can safely continue to learn in person while the affected group pivots to remote learning.
Thank you for understanding that, due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the name of the individual with COVID-19 or the individuals quarantining. I also ask that if you have questions or concerns you reach out directly to myself, rather than post on social media. We must all support each other.
We recommend everyone take action to help limit the spread of COVID-19, even if your child is not experiencing symptoms.
The most important things you can do:
- Make sure your child is wearing a mask.
- Make sure your child is washing their hands.
- Keep your child home if they are sick.
- Call your primary care provider if you or your child have symptoms of COVID-19.
Continue to take good care of yourselves and each other. Please reach out to our district COVID coordinator, Soph Hall (firstname.lastname@example.org), superintendent, Jennifer Botzojorns (email@example.com) or me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
Cheryl McVetty, Principal
