Spartan Community, As we begin sport competitions it is imperative that we stress the importance of face coverings for all spectators attending both indoor and outdoor events. We understand this is a frustration, but we must remember that 2 weeks ago this wasn't even a possibility. In order for our kids to stay in school, as well as continuing to compete, we must do our part and follow the mandates to MASK UP. Let's go Spartans! Let's do our part!
September 14, 2020 Dear Parents, Today, we learned that a person in the Middle School has been diagnosed with Covid19. In addition to learning, health and safety are top priorities at Mason County Central Schools. Approved CDC-protocols, including mask-wearing, physical-distancing, cleaning and sanitation, are in place and have been followed. Please know that we are working closely with experts at the health department who are providing direction and guidance for this situation. As a result, it has been determined that there were no close contact exposures known to have occurred as a result of this incident. If new information develops, you will be contacted by the health department if your child is determined to be a close contact. As a precautionary measure, we would like to share information with you on COVID-19 and ask that you continue to watch your child closely for symptoms. The virus that causes COVID-19 is spread most commonly from person to person, through respiratory droplets made when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. It spreads easiest when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet for at least 15 minutes). You can also get COVID-19 by having direct physical contact with someone that is infected, like touching, hugging, or kissing, as well as sharing eating or drinking utensils. It may also be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. Once infected, illness begins within 2 to 14 days. We ask that you help protect your family and your community from this disease by taking the following steps: • Watch for symptoms of COVID-19 illness, which are fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea. • It is recommended you get tested for COVID-19 if you do get symptoms. You can call 2-1-1 or go to www.michigan.gov/coronavirustest for testing locations. • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially before eating, after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. • If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Stay home if you are sick. • Avoid gathering in groups, stay at least 2 arms’ length (about 6 feet) apart from others, and stay out of crowded areas. • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others. • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze. • Clean and disinfect surfaces that are touched often at least once a day. More information can also be found at: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html. You are also welcome to contact me with any questions. Sincerely, Rob Dennis, Principal 231-757-3724 firstname.lastname@example.org P.S. For the future, we will continue to follow the public health protocols and guidance including multiple rounds of cleaning and sanitizing each day and we have been assured by District Health Department #10 that classes can safely continue.
