“Please understand this is an integral part of our safety protocols and our new normal as we navigate what we know will be a very challenging school year,” said a message sent to guardians Friday evening.

“It’s not going away anytime soon, so yes, the more kids that are in school, the more districts open, schools open, we’re gonna definitely start hearing about these alerts,” Meredith Hoofnagle said, a parent of second-grader at Layer Elementary School.

“We had to do that for a good solid month and a half in March and April,” she said. “I’m confident we’ll be able to handle it, get through it.

Parent Tiffany Dowling realized it was coming, just not this rapidly.

“I didn’t think it would happen this fast but it did, and I figured it’s what most of us sending face-to-face should have prepared for,” she said.

She has a middle schooler and a high schooler and is set up to keep them home if necessary.

“I think we do all need to start thinking ahead and start making those plans,” she said.

These questions included: Who was tested positive for coronavirus? How long that person remained at the school and when did he leave? How much social distancing was practiced by that person?

After answering the questions, administrators demonstrated that they’ll go along with the chart of instructions for what to do next.

Pace further added that if we would found any direct contact with the patient, or in case the social distancing up to 6 feet has not practiced. Further, if the students were not wearing the masks or the persons were exposed to the patient longer than 15 minutes, or any direct contact has been made with the patient. In these circumstances, we’ll immediately notify those people. They would be isolated for 2 weeks. Also, we’ll recommend testing of the whole circle.
