The number of COVID 19 cases in Williamson County continue to tick upwards. We want to keep all of our schools open to in-person learning, however we need everyone's help. Most of the new cases in Williamson County have been traced back to social gatherings in which social distancing was not observed, and face masks were not worn. We are asking everyone to limit his/her child's outside social activities and to encourage social distancing, the wearing of face masks when in public and the frequent washing of hands. We have had several cases of COVID 19 in our schools. Most if not all have been traced to origins outside of the school. If we are able to contain COVID 19 cases in our schools, we will remain open. If, however, the schools are shown to be causing the virus to spread among the students and staff, we will be forced to pivot quickly to remote only learning for the safety of everyone involved.
Two HHS students tested positive today for COVID 19. The students have not been in school this week. At least one of the students, came in contact with the virus from an adult in the home. One student was quarantined because of close contact. His/her family has already been contacted by school officials.
Herrin Elementary School was notified today that two siblings tested positive for COVID 19. These students have not been in school this week. The source of virus was from an adult family member. All families of students in close contact with the positive cases have been contacted.
An adult at Northside Primary Center, who does not provide instruction to students, has tested positive for COVID 19. This individual has not been at Northside this week. Contact tracing was done, and all those that needed to be quarantined have already been notified. No students needed to be quarantined. If you have any question, feel free to call the Unit Office at 988-8024.
A little before 10:00 this morning, we were notified that a Herrin High School student had tested positive for COVID-19. We took immediate action and quarantined all students who were in close contact with the infected student. The parents were called and the students were released. If you have not been contacted, your son/daughter was not in close contact with the positive individual. Please remember to keep your son or daughter at home if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or if you are awaiting test results.
