Letter to School Communities COVID 19 12/17/20
December 21, 2020
Dear MSAD #60 Community;
This is being sent to inform you of latest COVID-19 case information for MSAD #60.
An individual associated with Noble High School has a “presumed positive case”, an individual associated with North Berwick Elementary School has a CDC confirmed case, and an individual associated with Noble Middle School (Grade 7 White Team) has a CDC confirmed case. In two of these instances the individuals were not in school during what would be considered the infectious period therefore the tracing of close contacts did not need to occur. It was necessary to identify close contacts for the third case. Students and staff considered “potential” close contacts of this individual have been notified and per the guidance of the CDC.
Please note that starting on December 23, 2020 written communication regarding cases will look a bit different. Currently, the district sends two written letters out once there is a confirmed positive case. One letter is sent to just those students/staff identified as close contacts and the other letter is sent out to the entire district community. Should it be necessary for us to contact the community regarding a positive case during break due to the fact that close contacts need to be notified, one letter will be sent out to the school district community. That letter will include a bit more specificity and may list a teacher/team by name, a bus number, or any other pertinent information. The goal for doing this is to ensure that close contacts are all notified.
Please continue to monitor your child for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. We ask for continued assistance as we head into December Break. Please email District Head Nurse, Amy Creighton, (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you or your child receives a positive COVID test result. Please include your child’s first and last name, grade level, and school in the email.
Thank you in advance for your efforts to assist the district as we navigate cases during the next few weeks.
