Preventative Measures Statement:
To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the potential risk of exposure to our students and staff, we ask that you comply with the following:
Any students, staff, or visitors of the Addison CSD who experience any of the following (of greater intensity or frequency than what you normally experience) since last being on campus, must stay home and contact your physician for treatment and/or testing:
• Fever (100.00)/chills
• Nasal Congestion
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Muscle pain or body aches
• Sore throat
• Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
• New loss of taste or smell
• A positive COVID-19 test within the last 10 days
• Identified as close contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 and are experience symptoms
Families - Regarding information pertaining to positive COVID cases among our staff and students, the District has decided not make calls to all families as the positive cases are very few in number and only impact a handful of families. We have learned from our experiences last year that many don’t need/want the notification if it has nothing to do with their child(ren). In addition, the District and the County does contact tracing and quarantining, if necessary, for every positive case.
Please know that the District is following all currently recommended sanitizing/disinfecting procedures in the event of positive cases and does not need to close school to do so. Further, data indicates that the virus does not spread via surface contact, further reducing the need to shut down an entire school in the event of small number of positive cases.
If you have a specific question or need individual data, our principals certainly can and will help with this. Our main goal is to keep everyone safe and to stay open. We strive to ensure both every day!
