Moments ago we were notified that an individual associated with Yarmouth High School has tested positive for COVID-19. Because this person developed symptoms less than 48 hours after having been at the school, we have been directed by the CDC to notify students and adults who had close contact with the individual that they must quarantine for 10 days from last contact. We are completing those communications at this time and plan to have all calls made this afternoon. If you do not receive a call, then your child was not one who had close contact with this individual.
It is our intent to maintain the current, hybrid schedule at the High School so long as we do not have significant numbers of staff in quarantine as a result of this case. We will keep you informed of any adjustments to that plan as the day progresses.
Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation as we address this pandemic at the local level.
