White Pine Elementary COVID-19 Case – No contact tracing needed

Today, White Pine Elementary administration was notified by East Idaho Public Health that a 5th grade student in our school recently tested positive for COVID-19.

Symptoms for the student started on Monday and they have not been at school since last Friday, September 18th. As per East Idaho Public Health, there is no need for contact tracing in the school setting due to when the onset of symptoms occurred.  

The student who has tested positive for COVID-19 will not return to the building for at least 14 days, unless they provide evidence of negative test results.  

Classes for all other students and staff will go on as usual. 

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 attention should call their healthcare provider to report an illness or exposure to someone with COVID-19 prior to seeking care. Please notify the school office right away if you 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 your 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. 

We are closely monitoring this situation and will provide you with updates if any further steps are necessary. If you have questions or need to report a positive case of COVID-19, please contact Ken Graham at 208-522-4432 or grahamke@wpcscougars.org.

Sincerely,

Ken Graham, Principal
