COVID-19 Weekly Data Report Requirements

Posted on: September 11, 2020
COVID-19 Weekly Data Report
The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and Governor DeWine issued a new general health order that provides mandatory requirements for school operations and reporting of COVID-19 data for both parents and school officials.
 
Here is a snapshot for Kings for this week. This document will be updated weekly and can be found on our website on the Coronavirus page.
 
Parents or guardians of students, and school staff, are strongly encouraged to provide notice of a positive case diagnosis within 24 hours. Parents should call their student's school building and speak to the building nurse. The Kings School District employs a designated COVID-19 Contact Tracer to monitor quarantines and positive test results. This tracking system will be monitored daily for updated reporting on COVID-19 cases. 
 
Parents are also encouraged to notify the District of testing due to suspected cases of COVID-19, regardless of the result. Efficient contact tracing involves both notification and timing of close contacts with the child or adult who may be considered a suspected case. If your child is tested, please keep them home from school until you receive results.
 
Please continue to perform a daily health assessment on your student before coming to school. You can utilize this Decision Tree to help decide if you should send your child to school.
 
We appreciate all of the patience and care shown by our Knight Nation while we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. For more information on safety protocols and our back to school plan please visit our Reopening Plan website resource page.
