Cohorts and other public health measures in schools have effectively mitigated the risk of transmission and informing contact tracing. Administrators, teachers, and staff have consistently implemented public health measures with responsiveness, confidence, and a great deal of professionalism. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter as we continue our efforts to ensure our students and community's safety.
