Current Napoleon Community Schools Associated Cases of COVID-19  2021/22

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.

Napoleon Community Schools has the following current school associated COVID-19 cases:

  • Napoleon High School                 1
  • Ackerson Lake High School        0
  • Napoleon Middle School             0
  • Ezra Eby Elementary School       1
  • Pirates Cove Childcare/ Preschool       0
  • Other District Areas     0

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.

  • Napoleon High School                 31
