To Our Indian Creek Families:
On Thursday, September 17, we were notified by a partner agency that two adults who service Indian Creek Schools had tested positive for COVID-19. These two adults work with NHJ to provide outside services to our students. The contracted workers will quarantine the recommended number of days per the Johnson County Health Department and the Indiana State Department of Health guidelines.
Contact tracing has been completed. Those determined to be within close contact have been notified. For COVID-19, a close contact is defined as anyone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes starting from 48 hours before the person began feeling sick until the time the patient was isolated.
In response to COVID-19 we have made many adjustments to our school environment. Despite these efforts, we know that positive cases will arise. We will continue to follow our Safe Re-entry Plan and when we are notified of positive COVID-19 cases within the school system we will work with the Johnson County Health Department to identify and inform those who have been in close contact for contract tracing.
Thank you to our families who have diligently monitored their children in order to keep all of our students safe and in attendance at school. As a reminder, you can help us by:
- Following the daily symptom checker each day before sending student(s) to school.
- Keeping students who exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19 at home.
- Encouraging frequent handwashing while at home and away from school.
- Wearing a mask when in public.
Thank you for your due diligence, patience, and understanding as we progress through the school year.
Dr. Tim Edsell, Superintendent of Schools
