This message is to notify you that the closure of West Chatham Middle School due to a confirmed positive COVID case and related quarantine protocol for school personnel will continue for a second week November 2 – 6, 2020.
SCCPSS considers the health and well-being of our students, teachers, and staff to be of the utmost importance. We have been working closely with local public health officials to ensure the proper recommendations are followed to isolate staff diagnosed with COVID-19 and identify close contacts. All areas of the school have been deep cleaned and disinfected this week while the building has been closed.
Parents are reminded that if a child develops COVID-19 symptoms, please keep him or her out of school and group activities, such as sports or play groups, and contact the child's healthcare provider as soon as possible with the information that a COVID-19 case was identified in your child's school. The Department of Public Health recommends that laboratory testing be obtained on all suspected COVID-19 cases.
