Heritage COVID-19 Update 3/3/2021

Heritage Schools COVID Update - SINGLE CURRENT HS CASE 3-3-2021

To the Parents, Guardians, Stakeholders of Heritage Schools:  

The Heritage District was informed by county public health today that a HS student at Broadlands has tested positive. Unfortunately multiple students and some staff may also be in quarantine on timelines set by public health and the notified students will learn remotely during their quarantine period.  Heritage extracurricular activities may also be effected and the teams and organizations involved will be informed along with parents as public health determines those effected through contact tracing which started this morning . Per HIPAA and Public Health privacy guidelines, students and/or employees who test positive or are on quarantine timelines at home are never identified.   

Parents of effected students are being contacted by the school district in addition to public health district personnel.   The district is assisting the health department with supporting information, and public health is working as quickly as possible on contact tracing.  Anyone identified within the contact time and distance guidelines from tracing interviews, class lists, activity dates, seating charts, and/or bus seating will receive instructions from county health on mitigation measures and will also receive a call from Heritage Schools with quarantine information.  School Nurse DiAnne Boyd is our primary contact for COVID-related mitigations at 896-2421 ext. 121.  

Please continue to check temperatures every school day morning before boarding a bus or dropping off or walking to school and accurately fill out symptom check sheets to be turned in daily. Spectators at sports events continue to follow the district guidelines for attendance.  

You can inform the main office for your student(s) of any exposure or symptom situations and absences are fully excused for any COVID-related reasons.
