Update on COVID cases

Per Jackson County Health Department guidance as of March 14, 2022 this is the order that has been rescinded: Coronavirus – Reporting of Confirmed and Probable Cases of COVID-19 at Schools (michigan.gov). Schools are no longer required to report COVID cases on their website.

NAPOLEON COMMUNITY SCHOOLS ASSOCIATED COVID-19 2021/22 CASES THROUGH MARCH 13, 2022

A “School Associated Case” means a case where Napoleon Community Schools has been notified of a probable or confirmed COVID-19 case amongst students, teachers, staff members, coaches, volunteers, or any other person who was present in a Napoleon Community School District program or on district property or at a school function under circumstances that may have resulted in the transmission or contraction of COVID-19 during their infectious period.

Once Napoleon Community Schools is notified of a probable or confirmed COVID-19 case, the impacted spaces will undergo enhanced sanitation protocols. Any persons potentially affected directly by any event/COVID instance/case who may require testing or quarantine, as determined through contact tracing conducted by the Health Department, will be contacted directly by either the JCHD or a Napoleon Community School District administrator. If you have not been contacted by the JCHD or a Napoleon Community School District administrator, you should assume you do not need to take further action and you do not need to contact the school to ask if you have been directly affected.

Since the beginning of the 2021-22 school year, Napoleon Community Schools has had the following cumulative school associated COVID-19 cases:

– Napoleon High School 104

– Ackerson Lake High School 6

– Napoleon Middle School 76

– Ezra Eby Elementary School 75

– Pirates Cove Childcare/ Preschool 6

Other District Areas 5 Any person with symptoms of infectious illness, such as influenza (flu) or COVID-19, should stay home and contact their healthcare provider for testing and care, regardless of vaccination status. Staying home when sick is essential to keeping COVID-19 infections out of schools and preventing the spread to others. To prevent the spread of illness/ COVID-19 and reduce the potential risk of exposure to our district, NCS requests that families please screen every student in your household before they leave for school each day.

IF YOUR CHILD IS QUARANTINED, HAS TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 OR IS OTHERWISE REQUIRED TO BE AT HOME PLEASE NOTIFY THE SCHOOL OFFICE FOR THE REASON OF THEIR ABSENCE. ACCOMODATIONS FOR ONLINE LEARNING MAY BE MADE AVAILABLE TO KEEP YOUR STUDENT FROM FALLING BEHIND.
