This afternoon, after students were released from school, we became aware that a staff member at Horace Mann Elementary tested positive for COVID-19. We have contacted the Osage County Health Department and Ms. Supernaw and her teachers have begun contact tracing procedures.
If your child is found to have been in close contact with this staff member, you will be contacted by your child's teacher and will also receive a letter from the County Health Department on beginning quarantine protocol.
Please understand that we are not aware of any other staff members or students at the elementary having tested positive at this time. Our staff and students continue to follow procedures recommended by the CDC and County Health Department. The wearing of masks, physical distancing, and quarantine procedures are designed to prevent the spread of this disease. In the first seven weeks of school, we have had four students and two staff members test positive for COVID-19.
