Dear Parents/Guardians and Students: Today we learned that an individual at Southern Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19 .

The individual was last in the building on Monday, November 16th. This individual will not return to school until the isolation period has passed.

Anyone who has been in close contact with the individual, as determined by the Division of Public Health, will be contacted by our partners at DPH and may have to quarantine for 14 days before returning to school. Individual decisions on quarantining are made by DPH epidemiologists, in consultation with the affected individual, and may depend on whether the individual was wearing a mask.
