COVID Cases and Data Dashboard

September 17, 2021

Dear Families:

First, we learned of 4 positive CCHS students in the last two days.  We conducted any necessary contact tracing and made any appropriate notifications.

Now that we are into year two of the pandemic and reporting positive COVID cases, we’ve decided to streamline the process.  A live, current data dashboard is now posted on the district’s home page.

COVID DATA DASHBOARD

This spreadsheet will be kept up to date so everyone has access to how many cases are active each week and overall this year.  I will only send emails to the entire community on a weekly basis to share the summary information unless we experience a spike or signs of school transmission.

This will not change the process of contact tracing and ensuring that everyone who needs to know about an exposure is aware and the needed steps are taken.  This new process will allow me to share updates on much of the other great work going on throughout the districts.

It is important to us that you feel well informed.  Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Best,

Laurie
