The superintendent of Indian Lake Schools notified parents Monday evening about a positive case of COVID-19 at Indian Lake Elementary.
Rob Underwood used the schools all-call system to inform residents of the district.
The following is the transcript from the all-call from IL Superintendent Rob Underwood Monday afternoon:
“The purpose of this message is to provide the school community general awareness of a positive COVID-19 case at Indian Lake Elementary. The families of the few students who were in direct contact with the individual have already been notified. This is the first reported positive case at Indian Lake Schools. This communication is intended to inform families, not to alarm them, so we kindly ask that you do not panic. COVID is among us all the time and we expect that there will be more cases throughout the school year, however, we have many practices in place to limit the spread and to keep our students safe.
This is not a notice of quarantine, rather an awareness for you to continue to check your child’s temperature and monitor for symptoms on a daily basis. At this time, it is not necessary for your child to be tested for COVID-19. If your child requires testing or quarantine, an official from the Health Department will contact you. If your child or anyone in your home should develop symptoms, please call your primary care provider or the Logan County Health Department. Do you not send your child to school or to activities when ill and please continue to wear masks in public and practice social distancing. Unless you have been contacted by the Health Department, your child can continue to come to school if they are symptom free and healthy.”
