SE Families and Community,
We received word late this afternoon that a student at Seneca East Elementary has tested positive for COVID-19. Upon learning of this positive case, we have conducted contact tracing and reached out to the individuals who had close contact with the positive student. Additionally, we have contacted the Seneca County Health Department and shared the contact information for the families involved. If the school has not contacted you, you are not directly involved with this exposure. The families of the students who are required to quarantine have all been contacted.
As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday, please take precautionary measures to lower the spread of COVID-19 in our community. We are already planning to return to school on December 1, 2020; under the Hybrid plan, our ability to safely return to school after the holiday and the continuation of the winter sports season is totally dependent upon the rate of infection in our community. This notification should serve as a reminder to all of us that COVID-19 is present in our community.
Thank you for your continued support during this very challenging time!
