February 16, 2021
 
 
Good afternoon Red Mill families,
 
A member of the Red Mill Elementary school community has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last in school Wednesday, February 10, 2021. Staff and parents of students identified as close contacts have been notified. Close contacts may also be contacted by the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PA DOH). 
 
For your reference, the District has established a COVID-19 Tracker to share data on active cases, quarantine numbers, and total cases impacting our District. The tracker may be viewed at: https://www.wssd.k12.pa.us/COVID19Tracker.aspx
 
What happens now:
  • Unless in quarantine, isolation, or the impacted classroom; students and staff should continue to report to school on their assigned days. The District website provides additional information and guidance for families with a child in quarantine: https://www.wssd.k12.pa.us/QuarantineFAQ.aspx 
  • All members of the impacted classroom will work remotely to ensure continuity of education during this time.
  • Classrooms and affected areas will undergo any additional required sanitation and cleaning in accordance with CDC, PDE, and PA DOH guidance.
 
What you can do:
  • The CDC recommends you closely monitor your child for possible symptoms for the next 2 to 14 days. The CDC’s website provides a complete listing of COVID-19 symptoms and a self-checker.
  • If anyone in your household begins to exhibit symptoms, seek medical attention from a health-care provider and notify the school.  
  • Practice safety measures in and out of school, and continue to be mindful of time spent interacting with others and at what distance. The CDC’s website provides recommendations for protecting yourself and others from the virus.
 
Please don’t hesitate to call the school at 717-938-3778 or email us directly if you have questions or concerns regarding this information. 
 
 
Sincerely,
