The Community Schools of Frankfort has been informed of two positive COVID-19 cases within the middle school and high school student population. We have followed health department guidelines for contact tracing and have notified all close contacts to inform them what they should do. All close contacts will quarantine for 14 days before returning to school. The criteria includes being within six feet for a total of 15 minutes of an individual with a confirmed positive case and within two days of the symptom onset for the individuals.
If you have NOT received a call, your child has NOT been identified as a close contact.
Additionally, the high school has experienced 3 staff members in a short period of time who have tested positive. All transmissions have taken place outside of the school setting and all individuals are on isolation at home. Close contacts have been identified and are under the 14 day quarantine.
Out of an abundance of caution, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our schools, Frankfort High School and Frankfort Middle School will move to e-learning on Friday of this week and continuing the week of October 5 through 9. Only elementary students will report to school. Middle and high school students will return to regular school on Monday, October 12.
Middle school and high school students on e-learning will sign in to Canvas for school, following the 2- hour delay schedule. Daily attendance will be taken according to participation and completed assignments. All school staff will report to work as usual.
Grab and Go meals will be available for middle school and high school students during e-learning days. The pick-up location will be behind the high school from 11:30am until 12:30pm daily. Because our high school and middle school staff will continue to work from school while students are at home for e-learning, parents should contact the school during school hours with any questions they may have.
While home on e-learning, we ask that our students continue to maintain social distancing and follow all of the safety practices that reduce the risk of illness transmission.
Thank you, and have a good afternoon.
