What if Someone Gets Sick at School

  •  

    District COVID-19 contact persons are responsible for informing and working with the Portage County Health Department to identify the next steps and establish contact tracing efforts.

    Knowledge of a positive COVID-19 case should be reported to:

    For Students:
    Cory Hirsbrunner, Assistant Superintendent and Director of Elementary Education
    715-345-5466 

    For Staff:
    Beth Bakunowicz, Director of Human Resources

    Prepare for Disruptions to School Operations

    There may be times when individual students, classrooms, wings, or entire buildings must be closed for cleaning and sanitizing due to a positive COVID-19 case or related concerns.

    There may also be situations when a cohort of students, or students who had close contact with a known positive COVID-19 case, will need to quarantine for 14 days, though traditional classroom learning is able to resume for the general student body.


    Communications

    Parents will be contacted by County Health and Human Services if their student has been in close contact with a positive case and the next appropriate steps.

    Parents will be informed by the district of closing/reopening timeframes via phone, email, text, and the school and district website.
