  • School Outbreak Notification

    Posted by Antonio Sanchez on 10/21/2020

    Parent/Guardian/Staff Member:

    This is a notification that Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) has identified an outbreak of COVID-19 at Wilson Primary School. Since our schools are in close proximity to each other we have made the decision to return to virtual instruction for all Wilson students (both Primary and Elementary) and staff until November 9 (tentatively).

    Public Health is currently working closely with administration and staff to identify close contacts of the individuals who have tested positive to prevent further spread of the disease. You will receive a separate notification if you/your child are/is identified as having had close contact to a positive case. All close contacts of positive cases will be required to stay home from school (quarantine) for 14 days, regardless of a negative test, except those considered essential workers.

     A school outbreak of COVID-19 is defined as:

    • Two or more students or staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 within a 14-day period; and
    • Could have had some close contact such as in a classroom or on a school sports team;
    • Do not live in the same household; and
    • Were not identified as close contacts of each other in another setting during a Public Health case investigation (e.g. friends who play together in each other’s homes).

    COVID-19 is still circulating in our community. The best way to keep you and your family safe from respiratory diseases like COVID -19 and the flu is to:

    • Clean your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Put distance between yourself and other people (at least 6 feet).
    • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces daily.
    • Get a flu vaccine.

    If you/your child or a family member is experiencing COVID-like symptoms (fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, sore throat, headache, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, muscle/body aches, and/or a new loss of taste or smell), do not attend work/school, and consider either seeking healthcare or getting a COVID-19 PCR or antigen test, depending on the severity of symptoms. Testing locations can be found by calling 2-1-1.

    We are working closely with Maricopa County Department of Public Health to stop COVID-19 from spreading in our school. This includes daily sanitizing of classrooms, following the Mitigation Plan, reminding staff and students to stay home when they are sick and making sure that anyone who is exposed to COVID-19 stays home for 14 days.

    For additional questions related to our school, please contact ____. For questions related to COVID-19, please either email COVIDparenthotline@maricopa.gov or dial 2-1-1, select option 6 (for COVID-19), and then select option 3 (for the COVID Parent Hotline) or visit www.Maricopa.gov/COVID19.

    Sincerely,

     

    Antonio Sanchez, Superintendent

    Wilson School District

  • Potential Exposure Notice

    Posted by Antonio Sanchez on 10/19/2020

    Dear Wilson Parent/Guardian,

    The health and welfare of our students and staff is our number one priority. We recently became aware that an individual was diagnosed with COVID-19. This individual was at Wilson Primary School on October 14, 2020. Out of an abundance of caution, we want to share what we have done in response, and provide you with the signs, symptoms, and important next steps.

    Our response included the following protocols:

    • Contact tracing occurred following Maricopa County Department of Public Health guidelines.
    • Parents of students in the effected class were notified. If you have not been contacted directly, then your child was not in direct contact with this individual.
    • Staff in close contact with the individual were notified (following contact tracing protocols from MCDPH).
    • Teachers, IA's and students will quarantine for 14 days. Instruction will continue via distance learning. 
    • Classroom was closed and disinfected following Mitigation plan guidelines.
    • Continuation of disinfecting and deep cleaning of all classrooms.
    • Maricopa County Department of Public Health was notified. 
    • Safety Team met to debrief and resolve any outstanding issues.

    COVID-19 is a virus that can cause no symptoms, a mild illness, or severe symptoms. Symptoms may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Individuals with COVID-19 can experience a wide range of symptoms. Some symptoms include:

    • Fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, rash, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea.

    The virus spreads mainly from person-to-person. COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms. The virus can also spread:

    • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about six feet).
    • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or speaks.
    • It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching his or her own mouth, nose, or eyes.

    Practicing good hygiene is vital. Please ensure that you are following these guidelines to stay healthy:

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water.
    • Cover your mouth/nose when you cough or sneeze.
    • Stay home from school/work when you are sick.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Wear face masks/coverings when in public and maintain social distancing when possible (6 feet).
    • Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.

    We recommend that you and your family members monitor your health.  If you experience symptoms of COVID-19, seek medical care and/or self-isolate at home. Additional information is available on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website at www.cdc.gov

    Wilson School District will continue to follow the guidance and expertise of local and national health officials to help protect the health of our students, employees and families. Our maintenance department and staff will continue to diligently clean and sanitize throughout the day.  Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to protect the health of our students and staff.

    On September 15, 2020 the Wilson Governing Board voted to follow the metrics as recommended by the Arizona Department of Health Service to re-open schools. This means the district will not follow a set date to open and will instead follow the COVID-19 metrics as they apply to the Wilson School District. In order to re-open Wilson schools in a Hybrid model (some students learning in-person at school and some students learning at-home online through December) the benchmarks must be in the yellow/green or green/green for two consecutive weeks. We are focusing on cases per 100 thousand and the percent positivity and are following the recommended learning scenario.

    As of today, COVID numbers are in green/yellow indicating the district is on target to re-open on Oct 12 if next Thursday (Sept 24) the numbers stay in the green/yellow or yellow/yellow. Each week, we will meet to review the most recent data for the Wilson School District. Please view the Wilson metrics every Thursday to stay current on benchmarks reopening of schools and the COVID-19 in the Wilson School boundaries. click here to view the district metrics

    We are pleased to announce that last week we checked out laptops to many of our families. By now, you should have been contacted by someone from your child’s school to determine your technology needs. If you have not heard from your child’s teacher or someone at school, please call the school and we will get you connected.

    Wilson Staff and Families,

    Wilson School District has just learned that all Arizona Schools will be closed through the rest of the school year. Please see the joint statement below that was issued by Governor Ducey and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman:  

    “In alignment with yesterday’s updated federal guidance, today we are announcing the extension of school closures through the remainder of the school year. Today’s announcement is intended to give parents and educators as much certainty as possible so they can plan and make decisions. While this isn’t the outcome any of us wanted, we are grateful for the partnership of schools around the state, who have stepped up to offer virtual and take-home learning opportunities for our students. These efforts are crucial, and we recognize that schools are making every effort possible to continue providing instruction during closures. We also thank our legislative partners for passing legislation ensuring all educators and staff see no disruption in pay. Our number one priority will continue to be health and safety, and we will continue to work closely with public health officials to make the best decisions for kids, families, and our school communities.”

    Wilson School District will continue our plan for Home Learning through the end of the school year. In addition, today’s announcement gives us more information to be able to make decisions about the important end of the school year questions that many parents have. We will work as quickly as we can to have additional information for parents and students as soon as possible.

    Today, Governor Doug Ducey signed legislation to support schools during closures. Read more information about the signed legislation here. Please note that the information regarding statewide testing is incorrect. Statewide assessment for 2019-2020 will be waived.

    Thank you for your ongoing support and patience. We will continue to provide updates as we receive new information.
