Masks will be required at Lineville from January 14-28, 2022.
The email below was sent to Lineville families and staff on January 13, 2022.
Dear Lineville Families and Staff,
This letter is to notify you that Lineville Intermediate School has surpassed the threshold of 3% of students and staff testing positive for COVID-19 this week. As a result, all students, staff, and visitors at Lineville will be required to wear face coverings at school for a two week period beginning tomorrow, Friday, January 14, 2022. If students attending school do not have a face covering, one will be provided for them.
The last day of the temporary face coverings requirement will be Friday, January 28, 2022 pending a reduction in the COVID-19 positive case rate at school during the next two weeks.
The excerpt below is from an update shared with all District families and staff yesterday.
Increasing Trend of Positive Cases in HSSD
Since January 1, we have observed an increase in the number of students who have tested positive for COVID-19. Staff positive cases have dropped after a slight initial increase. We are monitoring positive case counts and investigating potentially linked cases on a daily basis. We will be evaluating whether additional safety measures such as temporary mask requirements or classroom quarantines are necessary based on thresholds we shared at the December 13 Board of Education meeting:
- When there are five (5) linked positive cases in a classroom/school setting, we may temporarily quarantine the class to limit the spread of COVID-19.
- If there is over a 3% positivity rate in an individual school, we may impose a two-week mask requirement to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Please continue to visit the HSSD COVID-19 website for more information and call the HSSD COVID-19 Hotline (920-662-7233) to leave a message with test results or to ask a question of our school nurses.
The HSSD COVID-19 dashboard is updated on a daily basis weekdays with school by school data on positive cases and individuals in quarantine. We are also cleaning and disinfecting all of our classrooms and the school on a daily basis.
