The District was notified of 5 additional positive cases of COVID-19 in our schools. Two cases at the Indiana Junior High School/Eisenhower Elementary School, one case at East Pike Elementary, and two cases at the Senior High School. The Department of Health (DOH) worked with the school nurses and administration and concluded that additional students/staff are required to be quarantined. Several of the positive cases WILL be attributed to the District. The IASD is working with the DOH to finalize these numbers. Any questions regarding quarantines should be directed to the Department of Health at 1-877-PA-HEALTH (1-877-724-3258).
Based on the information above as well as our current case count, we will continue to stay open under the current model.
As a reminder, the 14-day clock starts at the onset of symptoms, not when the District is informed of the test results.
I realize that these are difficult times with the increased pressures the pandemic causes, and there are no guaranteed right or wrong answers at times due to the varying beliefs, attitudes, and opinions on the matter. We thank you all for what you have done already and thank you for the work that is to come. We truly appreciate you all. Please visit our COVID dashboard at www.iasd.cc for additional information relating to the number of positive cases and quarantines the District is facing at the current time.
Mr. Michael J. Vuckovich
