Dear Families,

Recently, we learned that a person on campus has tested positive for COVID-19.  As members of the school community, we understand that this might raise concerns alongside a caring response.

At this time, we are conducting contact tracing (if they have been on campus during the infectious period) which includes but is not limited to: reviewing cohort logs, interviewing  staff, and checking cameras.

If contact tracing determines that your child is a close contact and needs to be quarantined, you will be personally contacted by school staff within 24-48 hours of the school being notified.

While it is our goal to keep students in school, please be vigilant in regards to watching for primary COVID symptoms. Primary symptoms include: fever of 100.4 or higher, cough, congestion, chills, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, new loss of taste or loss of smell.

We will keep you updated with any new information as it comes out, while meeting the requirements to honor everyone’s right to privacy.

If you have any questions, please contact the school principal or Nurse Elliott, our district nurse, at selliott@fernridge.k12.or.us.

At the links below you can visit all the information regarding snow routes, and school closure information. These links can also be found on our Transportation page.

As a side note, if  we ever have a 2-hour delay on a Wednesday early release day-all schools would be released at their normal Mon/Tues or Thurs/Fri time.
