Indian Creek's COVID-19 Policies Changing
February 18, 2022 Author: Dr. Tim Edsell, Superintendent, Indian Creek Schools
To our Indian Creek Families:
The Indiana Department of Health announced changes in COVID-19 guidance for K-12 schools based on declining cases statewide. In accordance with the Johnson County Health Department, the following changes will become effective Tuesday, February 22.
- Schools no longer will be required to conduct contact tracing or report positive cases to IDOH.
- Schools no longer will need to quarantine students who are exposed to a positive COVID-19 case.
- Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 should contact Jill Lawalin at 317.878.2108 and isolate for five days and may return on Day 6 if they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication so long as symptoms are improving. Individuals should wear a mask at school through Day 10.
As we are no longer reporting Covid-19 cases to the IDOH or Johnson County Health Department, the COVID-19 Dashboard and Back-to-School Safe Re-entry Plan will be removed from the website.
Our health and wellness department will continue to monitor for symptoms and encourage testing. It does remain a federal mandate for everybody to wear a mask on the bus.
The last two years have been extremely challenging for everyone and we appreciate your patience and willingness to work with the administration.
