Dear Laverne parents, staff and community members:
We were notified that a Laverne School staff member tested positive for COVID-19. While we must protect the privacy of the person involved, we believe it is best to communicate transparently with you so you can make well-informed decisions for your family. The staff member was not at school this week at all nor while experiencing symptoms.
There is nothing more important to Laverne Public Schools than the safety and health of our students, our staff and their families. We work directly with county health officials to address situations involving COVID-19. Since the positive individual was not at school and no one on campus was exposed, health officials have confirmed that no additional action, including quarantine, is required by any staff members or students.
As more COVID-19 cases are being confirmed across the state, including in our community, we must be vigilant. Symptoms include fever, cough and shortness of breath. If you or any member of your family exhibit these symptoms, please contact your medical provider for advice immediately and keep your child at home from school with any symptoms.
We appreciate your understanding and partnership with us as we take the necessary steps to protect our school community. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve you and your family, especially as we face this challenging situation together. Thank you for your support of Laverne Public Schools. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the school.
Kyndra Allen, Superintendent
