We have had to quarantine most of our PK class due to close contact with a positive staff member. We appreciate your help in dealing with this pandemic. We continue to work diligently to maintain cleaning protocols. We ask that you watch your child for symptoms and help us work through this issue. This situation is still evolving with new directives being sent from the CDC just recently. It involves the contact tracing for exposure due to proximity of 6 feet for more than 15 minutes. This rule has just been changed and now states that the 6 feet, 15 minute rule is cumulative for a 24 hour period. We will work to apply this new standard. Thank you to everyone for your thoughts, prayers and patience. Guidelines from the State Health Department regarding quarantine for specific sports have been updated.

We continue to work with the Health Department to contact trace students at school through classroom seating charts, bus seating charts, and attendance registers to eliminate students who were not in close contact with a positive student. This information is compiled and given to the Health Department. The Health Department then determines who should be quarantined. The Health Department provides Frederick Public Schools with a return date for all of those who are quarantined or isolated.

If your child/children start exhibiting COVID related symptoms, it is strongly recommended that you keep them home and contact their primary care physician or the local health department.
