Dear Lighthouse families,
I am writing to inform you that we have had a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 among our staff. The school was notified of this today, January 2nd, and we are taking the appropriate measures to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and families. Blessedly, the staff member is recovering and we are praying for a full recovery for them and protection over their family.
Due to this confirmed COVID-19 case, the staff member has been placed in a two-week quarantine dating five days before the symptoms presented themselves. We have taken the following steps:
- Ensured that the staff member was not in contact with students and/or staff since December 18th (which was one week before symptoms were present).
- Ensured that they have no family members that attend or work at the school.
- Conducted a deep cleaning of the school including the area in which the staff member works. Thankfully, two weeks have passed since this staff member was present on campus.
- Followed the two-week quarantine recommendation to ensure full recovery for the staff member and safety for students and staff.
We are following published guidance from the Washington State Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thank you for your continued partnership in making it possible to keep our students safely in-person. I am very grateful for our staff’s efforts to provide quality, Christ-centered education throughout this school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at email@example.com.
Living to serve,
Head of School
