Dear Parents and Guardians,

Huron County Health Department has notified us on November 19, 2020 of a probable or confirmed COVID-19 case amongst students, teachers, staff members, coaches, volunteers, or any other person who was present on North Huron School property or at a school function under circumstances that may result in the transmission or contraction of COVID-19 during their infectious period.

·         Cleaning and disinfecting of the exposed location have been completed.

·         If your child was in close contact with a confirmed individual, you will be contacted by the Huron County Health Department. Please take their call and follow the recommendations they provide.

·         All confirmed cases should be isolated and close contacts quarantined for 14 days from last exposure in order to prevent illness in new persons. “Close contact” means being a household member, intimate contact, or caregiver of a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case; within 6 feet of the confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case for more than 15 minutes, even if wearing a non-medical face covering; or having unprotected contact with the infected person’s body fluids and/or secretions, for example, being coughed or sneezed on.

·         Please note that all information, including the name(s) of ill persons, is confidential in order to protect patient privacy.

·         In accordance with MDHHS Emergency Order Under MCL 333.2253 – Reporting of Confirmed and Probable Cases of COVID-19 at Schools, This notice has been posted within 24 hours to the district website on November 20, 2020 at 9:00 a.m.

As the safety of our students and staff is our number one concern, it has been determined that the GSRP and kindergarten students will not have face to face instruction starting tomorrow, November 20. These students will return to face instruction on Monday, November 30.

In this time period, which includes the Thanksgiving holiday, GSRP students will not have remote instruction. If needed additional days may be scheduled later in the school year.

Parents of kindergarten students should expect to receive a communication from your child’s teacher.  The kindergarten teachers will be providing short learning videos in Google classroom that students and parents will be able to view at their convenience. Also, today students will bring home individual practice sheets that they should complete and return on Monday, November 30 when kindergarten students are back for face to face instruction.

The Early Learning Center will be closed from Friday, November 20 through Friday, November 27. The Center will re-open on Monday, November 30.

The remote learning schedule for students in grades 1-12 will continue as it has been, with elementary students learning from 8:30 a.m. to noon each day and secondary students learning from 9:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day. Students attending tech center courses and dual enrollment courses should also continue to follow the instructions provided by your instructors in each class.

Finally, for all students there will be no remote instruction on Wednesday, November 25. This was originally scheduled to be a half day of instruction but a change has been made to the district calendar.

Please contact either the Elementary or Secondary Office during their regular hours if you have any questions or concerns regarding the information in this notice.  For additional questions about COVID-19, please visit the Huron County Health Department at https://www.hchd.us/
