Wednesday, White Pine Charter School administration was notified by health professionals that a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.
Through our contact tracing protocol, we have determined no students or staff were exposed as this staff member has not been in the building for weeks.
The primary symptoms of COVID-19 include shortness of breath, coughing, and fever or chills. Other symptoms include congestion, sore throat, diarrhea, abdominal pain, body aches, and loss of taste or smell. Anyone who needs medical care should call their healthcare provider to report an illness or exposure to someone with COVID-19 prior to seeking care. Please contact your supervisor if you or a family member begin to experience symptoms.
The health, safety, and well-being of our school community remains our top priority. We are following sound protocols aligned with expert health guidance to ensure we are doing everything we can to protect students’ health. We also want to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of wearing masks, staying six feet apart from others, and regularly washing your hands.
Thanks as always for being part of our White Pine family! If you have questions or need to report a positive case of COVID-19, please do not hesitate to contact Ken Graham ( email@example.com ) or Devan Tyler ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) at 208-522-4432.
