A Message from Our Superintendent

COVID-19 Update
October 26, 2020

FCSD #1 was informed of three positive cases of COVID-19 last week. The first was a student at LVHS. After we conducted contact tracing we determined that one person had been in close contact with the positive and was quarantined. That person subsequently tested positive later in the week; but due to being under quarantine, we avoided close contacts minimizing any potential exposure that could have occurred. The third person to test positive was a staff member and contact tracing, in that case, resulted in another staff member placed in quarantine. Despite the rise in community spread, the district continues to be minimally impacted due to mitigation strategies.

FCSD #1 thanks all stakeholders for supporting the wearing of masks and keeping children home when presenting symptoms. We want to celebrate the completion of the first nine weeks of in-person instruction. Our kids continue to receive the benefits of being with their teachers and participating in the full range of activities offered in our schools. We have been paying attention to districts around the state and many are reporting similar numbers and lack of transmission in the school setting. Given the seasonal change in weather, resulting in more time spent indoors, we expect numbers to continue to rise in the community. So more than ever we need vigilant adherence to mitigation strategies.

In order to provide information regarding COVID-19 positives and current active cases, we have developed a Google website and dashboard providing those numbers as well as useful resources. We will update this site every Monday. You can find the link to the site on our Home page: in the left-hand column under quick links. It is the black box titled COVID-19 Information.

Sincerely,

Dave Barker

Dave Barker, Superintendent
