September 25, 2021 3:00 PM

Dear HUUSD Families, 

On Saturday, 9/25/21, we learned about a person in our learning community with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) at Brookside Primary School in the preschool classrooms. No busing was involved with this case. We are beginning the process of contact tracing. Families at Brookside Primary School will be notified once the calls have been completed. We recommend that you take action to help limit the spread of COVID-19, even if your child is not experiencing symptoms.

People who may have been exposed will be notified.

Anyone who is not fully vaccinated and was in close contact with the person who tested positive may have been exposed to the virus and will be asked to quarantine, which means staying home and away from other people for up to 14 days. Read more about what it means to quarantine

Anyone who is fully vaccinated or has recovered from COVID-19 within the past 3 months and was in close contact with the person who tested positive does not need to quarantine unless they develop symptoms. 

If you are identified as someone who may have been exposed, someone from either Brookside Primary School or the Health Department will notify you and will provide information and guidance on quarantine and other recommendations. If the Health Department calls, make sure to answer the phone or call them back.

Learn more about what happens when there is a case in a school. 

The most important things you can do: 

  • Make sure your child is wearing a mask when recommended or required. 
  • Make sure your child is washing their hands
  • Keep your child home if they are sick.    
    • The most common symptoms experienced by children of the Delta Variant are runny nose, cough, fatigue, headache, and sore throat.
  • Call your primary care provider if you or your child has symptoms of COVID-19
  • Make sure that your children get vaccinated when they are eligibleFind a location near you.

Supporting our learning community 

In order to maintain everyone’s privacy, we cannot disclose who in our community has tested positive. Remember that we are all at risk of getting this virus. These “COVID-19 cases” are our friends and family, and we need to be understanding and supportive. People with COVID-19 often experience uncomfortable symptoms and emotional stress. Instead of participating in speculation or gossip, offer to help community members who are affected by quarantine. With creative action from all of us, we will get through this period of anxiety and disruption. We thank you for your investment in the health and wellbeing of our school community.

We are working with the Health Department to keep our community safe.

  • We are working closely with the Health Department and following their recommendations to keep our community safe.
  • Sick employees and children will not return to work until they are healthy.
