North Cross community,
We just completed testing 700 students, teachers, staff members, and volunteers and had 6 positive results. Among the positives were 4 lower school students, 1 coach, and 1 volunteer. There appeared to be no connections between those that tested positive so spread on our campus is unlikely.
The lower school kids were in 3rd grade (Martin), kindergarten (Brown), and JK4 (Votta and Cook). These students, along with the adults, will isolate for ten days, then return following a negative covid test and 24 hours symptom free.
Students determined to be in close contact have been notified and they are asked to quarantine for five days and may return following a negative test.
All in all, we are consistently seeing low positivity rates and as a result, we will test again the week following our winter holidays.
Thank you for all your hard work.
