Dear HUUSD Families,
On Wednesday, 12/1/21, we learned about a person in our learning community with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) at Harwood Union High School. Buses are not affected. We have completed contact tracing calls; very few individuals were identified as close contacts.
Vaccinations are available for all Vemonters ages 5 and up. If a person is fully vaccinated, they are not required to quarantine after exposure to COVID-19. Vaccination is the best way to avoid missing learning. Learn more about COVID vaccines for children by visiting COVID-19 Vaccines for Children.
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.
Learn more about getting tested in Vermont.
We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you.
