Notification of confirmed COVID-19 Case in BHSD elementary

Brookings-Harbor School District was informed early this afternoon of a confirmed positive COVID-19 case to an individual who belongs to one of the learning cohorts at Kalmiopsis Elementary School. The individual with the confirmed case has not been on campus this week. We are in the process of contacting families who have a student in the impacted class or bus route. These families will be requested to monitor their children closely for any symptoms. In order to protect the privacy of the individual, this will be the only information released by the district about this case.

Because the individual has not been on campus since last week and there is no school next week, we are working with Curry County Health to determine if the impacted cohort/class will need to be excluded from in-person school further after the Thanksgiving week break. If it is decided that additional quarantine is needed, families will be contacted by Nov. 25.
