Dear Parents, Guardians, and Staff:
A student with COVID-19 was recently identified at Dunham. At this time, we do not believe that you or your child were exposed. We will notify you immediately should this change. While the exposed individuals will be in quarantine or participate in a modified quarantine as a precautionary measure, the classrooms will remain open for the individuals who were not exposed.
Even though you or your child may have not had any known exposure to COVID-19, it is still present in our community and we encourage you to continue to take steps to keep you and those around you safe. These steps include washing your hands often and wearing a mask or facial covering when in public indoor spaces. If you or your child have not already been vaccinated, and you are able, we strongly encourage you to do so.
We also encourage you to be aware of the symptoms of COVID-19 and check yourself or your child for COVID-19 symptoms before coming to work or school.
Symptoms of COVID-19 can include:
- Fever (100.4 F or greater)
- Shortness of breath
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
- Body aches
- Sore throat
- Runny nose
- New loss of taste or smell
If your child or anyone in your home is experiencing any of these symptoms, please stay home and do not come to school or work. Contact your healthcare provider and request a test for COVID-19, or utilize one of our county’s free COVID-19 testing clinics, found here: https://socoemergency.org/emergency/novel-coronavirus/testing-and-tracing/
Thank you for helping to keep our community safe.
Dunham COVID-19 Coordinator
