Dear Parents, Guardians and Families,
The Spencer-East Brookfield Regional School District administration was notified by our nursing team that a staff member at the Wire Village School has tested positive for COVID-19.
The staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19 has not been in school. However, they will not return to school for at least 14 days, unless they provide evidence of negative test results.
Primary symptoms of COVID-19 include shortness of breath, coughing, and fever or chills. Other symptoms include congestion, sore throat, diarrhea, abdominal pain, body aches, and loss of taste or smell. If anyone in your home begins to demonstrate any of the symptoms listed above, we ask that you please keep your child home and consult your primary care physician. As well, please contact your school office if you begin to experience symptoms.
The health, safety, and well-being of our school community remains our top priority. We are following sound protocols aligned with expert health guidance to ensure we are doing everything we can to protect your health. We also want to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of wearing masks, staying six feet apart from others, and regularly washing your hands.
Paul S. Haughey, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
