Conway Elementary School Confirms Positive COVID Case

by Gino Devaney on October 20, 2020

Families were sent a letter today from SAU9 Superintendent of Schools, Kevin Richard confirming a positive case of COVID-19 at Conway Elementary School. Please read below.

Good Afternoon,

We were informed today of a confirmed case of COVID-19 at Conway Elementary School.

We are actively working with and following guidelines from the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

We have contacted those individuals, or their parents/guardians, who were determined to be in close contact with the infected person and they have been instructed to self-quarantine. They will be directed to get tested and keep themselves or their children quarantined until 14 days following their last possible exposure. In the event that your child has to quarantine, they will be able to access their education remotely.

If you or your child are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, such as a fever, chills, respiratory illness, aches or change in taste and smell, please stay home and away from others and get a COVID-19 PCR test. You may choose to seek out testing from your healthcare provider or at one of the testing sites located throughout the state.

The safety of our children and employees is our top priority.  We will continue to follow CDC guidelines for physical distancing, mask wearing, cleaning and disinfecting our high-traffic areas and frequently touched surfaces as outlined in the SAU #9 Re-Entry Plan.

Please see additional details and information in the COVID 19 Family Letter 10_20_2020.pdf .

We appreciate your ongoing cooperation and support in these unpredictable times.

Sincerely,

Kevin Richard, SAU9 Superintendent of Schools
