Dear HUUSD Families,
On Wednesday 1/19/22, we learned about 8 cases of COVID-19 in the HUUSD learning community that were in school during their contagious period: Brookside Primary School (1), Fayston Elementary School (4), Harwood Union Middle and High school (2) and Waitsfield Elementary School (1). Identified close contacts have been notified via email.
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.
Please see the Vermont Department of Health COVID-19 FAQs for answers to many questions. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you.
Kaiya Korb, Building Based COVID-19 Administrator
