Covid-19 Update

November 24, 2020

Dear Falcon Family,

We have been informed today that an intermediate and upper grade level student have tested positive for COVID-19.  If those testing positive were in attendance at school during the exposure time, we have identified all the individuals who meet the State Health Department requirements for having been in contact (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) with the individuals. 

Safety and the health of our students, staff, and community remain a 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 on the Autocaller.  

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.

Please remember using 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. 

As cases continue to be on the rise, we ask that you continue to help us slow the spread in our community by keeping your child home if they do not feel well or if they are quarantined. Enjoy your Thanksgiving break and the special time with your family. 

Thank you for your time and support,

Cindy Schmidt
