Nurse Marie's Statement on the Current Increase of Illness at the School

Charlo Community,

We are experiencing a significant increase of illnesses at school. This is a combination of colds, influenza and COVID related illness. If your child is sick PLEASE do not send them to school. If there is a positive COVID case in your home, the best policy is to quarantine the family at home. Should you choose not to do that, then we are requesting that your student wear a mask at school for 10 consecutive days. If you or a family member has a positive COVID test, that is helpful information so we can be proactive and also allows us to make sure that students are not penalized for missing too many days. Lake County does not contact us about adults, we only get information if they are a student.

Our main goal is to keep school a healthy place and open so all students can continue to learn and grow. We cannot do that if our staff does not remain healthy. Any questions please feel free to contact me at 406-644-2206
