Dear Northville Public School Families, Staff and Students,
The Wayne County Public Health Division COVID-19 Student Symptom Screening Tool for Families has been revised to reflect the CDC recommendation for the quarantine period after an individual has been identified as a close contact and exposed to COVID-19 or has traveled internationally.
It is critical that children are screened at home EACH MORNING before coming to school. This process is what helps keep our students and staff safe in school and a primary contributor to allowing us to continue in-person learning for students. Please use this new screener each day before sending your child to school.
PLEASE CONTINUE COVID REPORTING TO YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL
It is important that families continue to report to your child's school attendance office and/or principal's office if anyone in your household is a presumed or positive COVID case, if your child has been in close contact with a presumed or positive COVID case, or if your child is being tested for or is COVID positive. Our COVID Response Team, in coordination with our school nurse and the Wayne County Health Department, are ready to support you through the reporting and necessary quarantine requirement process.
The NPS Covid Response Team along with the Health Department will continue to monitor any outbreaks and all other cases. The NPS COVID-19 Dashboard lists the up-to-date COVID-19 data for Northville Public Schools, and includes a link to the more detailed, school-specific NPS COVID-19 Case Transparency Report.
As you may be aware, multiple SARS B.1.1.7 variant COVID cases have been confirmed in Wayne County. It is imperative that families and staff continue to practice safety protocols, symptom screen each morning, stay home as indicated on the screener and report all information to the school. NPS remains vigilant in these practices during in-person instruction, and believes that these efforts, combined with reducing spread within the community, provide the greatest opportunity to continue uninterrupted in-person instruction.
