Dear BEA Community,
Late this afternoon, we were notified that a student at Port Matilda Elementary was positive for Covid-19. Because we found out late in the afternoon, we have not had the opportunity to contact trace. Therefore, to be safe and give district officials the chance to contact trace properly, we have quarantined the 5th grade class tomorrow. Once we contact trace, we will contact those parents who will need to continue to quarantine their child and those that may return to school on Friday.
There also was a student at CPI that tested positive for Covid-19. Those students and parents from BEA that need to quarantine have been notified.
As always, I will keep you updated as events unfold.
Scott V. Graham
