Positive Case of COVID-19

November 12, 2020

Dear Falcon Family:

Two Friend students in the intermediate grades have tested positive for COVID-19.  While we must protect the privacy of the individuals  involved, we believe it is best to continue to communicate transparently with you so you can make well-informed decisions for your family.

Safety and the health of our students, staff and community remains top priority for Friend School.  We are working directly with county health officials to address each situation.  We are communicating with anyone affected when needed, prior to sending communications out across the district.  Friend School will continue to follow all COVID-19 related safety procedures.  Buildings are also being cleaned nightly, in addition to throughout the day.

COVID-19 is transmitted through person-to-person contact and through the exchange of respiratory droplets. As cases continue to be confirmed and are increasing across the state, including in our community, we must be vigilant. Symptoms of COVID-19 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. Symptoms usually appear 2-14 days after exposure.

The CDC recommends the following best practices to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • -Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. 

  • -Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not  available. 

  • -Avoid close contact with those who are sick. 

  • -Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve. 

  • -Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose. 

  • -Disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects. 

  • -Stay at home when you are sick.

  • -Practice social distancing, leaving at least six feet between you and other people.

  • -Wear a cloth mask in public when you cannot social distance.

It is important to remember that children are greatly influenced by the reactions of adults when facing difficult circumstances. I encourage everyone to remain calm and to be empathetic and respectful to those affected.  If you have additional questions about COVID-19 you may contact the health department at 405-224-2022.

Thank you for your time and support,

Cindy Schmidt, Friend School
