Coronavirus Disease 2019
The spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), which started in Wuhan, China has generated world, regional, and local news daily. We want to ensure you that we are monitoring the cases of COVID-19 closely in the news and will continue to stay up to date with any correspondence we receive from multiple state entities including DHHS (Department of Health and Human Services) , PHS (Public Health Solutions - local health department), and/or any other notable entities within the region. We will continue to work closely with the local health department and follow any of their protocols and procedures.
Since the onset of the flu season, Wilber-Clatonia Schools has implemented a stricter cleaning regimen. Please continue to practice and teach your children good hand hygiene. Use warm water, soap, and wash hands often, cough/sneeze in a tissue or in your elbow to prevent the spread of germs on hands, and monitor any symptoms that you or your student(s) may have. As always, keep students home if they are sick, especially if they have a fever greater than 100.0, are vomiting, or have diarrhea. If you have any further questions or concerns regarding your student’s health, please contact your healthcare provider.
Please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for any further information about COVID-19. Should a situation with COVID-19 interfere with the district’s ordinary operations or schedule, you will receive prompt notification.
Because this event is very dynamic and guidance changes daily we will continue to partner with the above health networks. Generally, in Policy an epidemic situation is declared when 20% of the students are absent. This number may change moving forward. Please note that any decisions made in regard to closure of school or cancellation of events may need to be made on short notice. In the event a notice needs to be made we will use our Alert system which allows us to push information out to the public relatively quickly in the form of text, email or via telephone
