Dear HUUSD Families,
On Thursday, December 23 we learned about a person in our learning community with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) at Waitsfield Elementary School in the 1st/2nd grade. No buses were involved with this case. All identified close contacts have been notified via email.
Waitsfield families, please check your email for additional communication. If you did not receive an additional email from Principal Korb, your child is not considered a close contact. Families are asked to use the Vermont Department of Health website for answers to frequently asked questions.
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. Learn more about COVID vaccines for children by visiting COVID-19 Vaccines for Children.
The most important things you can do:
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.
