Statement of Southwest Parke Community School Corporation Regarding COVID and the Move to E-Learning until August 24, 2020 On Thursday, August 6, 2020, all staff members reported to work at Southwest Parke. Masks were required and social distancing was encouraged. On Sunday, August 9, 2020, two staff members at Riverton Parke presented with symptoms (fever, chills, aches, etc.) and sought testing for COVID. The same day, they notified the corporation and were placed on quarantine. On Sunday, August 9, 2020, a student at Riverton Parke presented with symptoms. The same day, the parent notified the school corporation and indicated testing would occur on Monday, August 10, 2020. The student and the student’s family were placed on quarantine. As of this morning, the school was notified of positive test results on those under quarantine. The school corporation contacted the local health department. The local health department identified other individuals within the school who should be quarantined due to potential close contact. Those individuals were immediately notified and themselves quarantined. In each of these cases, symptoms presented on Sunday, August 9, 2020, and those involved contacted the school immediately. The move to e-learning until Monday, August 24, 2020 allows additional time for contact tracing and notification. It also allows time for deep cleaning of all facilities and buses to help reduce the risk of COVID transmission. We appreciate the staff of the Parke County Health Department and their assistance in this matter.

**Urgent Information** - Tuesday, August 11, 2020 All students will be dismissed from school today at 1 PM. There will be no after school care provided. All Southwest Parke schools will operate on an e-learning schedule for the rest of this week and all of next week. Students will return to face-to-face instruction on Monday, August 24th. We are moving to this e-learning schedule due to COVID cases and suspected COVID cases that are presenting at this time within our students and staff. We are working with our local health department and neighboring health departments to ensure that contract tracing can be accomplished. During this schedule change, I encourage you to keep practicing social distancing, keep washing your hands, and keep wearing masks in order to reduce possible spread of the virus. Please know our number one priority is the health and safety of our students. We will continue to monitor this situation and provide you with updates on a regular basis.
