PES and PAMS COVID Positive Cases: August 16-17, 2021 Good Day Pinon Unified Community, On the afternoon of Monday, August 16, Pinon Middle School was notified that a student tested positive for COVID-19. On Tuesday, August 17, Pinon Elementary was notified that a younger sibling of the PAMS student also tested positive for COVID-19. Contract tracing was conducted by PES and PAMS staff and all students and staff that are considered a “close contact” or “an exposure” were notified to be monitored and have a medical exam. The school building areas were cleaned and sanitized. Confidential or identifying student information cannot be shared but everyone involved as a possible exposure has been identified and were notified by the schools. IHS may also be conducting contract tracing and notifications. There is no action for you to take at this time if you did not receive a call directly from the school office. PUSD has protocols in place for students that become ill during the school day that include isolation, parental notification and contact tracing. District policy requires that students must have a medical clearance document from a health care provider before they will be allowed back into class. This is to protect the health and safety of everyone on campus. So far this year, PHS had one positive COVID case and PES had one positive case. In both situations, there were no other confirmed positive cases from any close contacts on campus. Everyone involved in those cases has been medically cleared to return to school. We ask your assistance to ensure that your child does not come to school if they have any signs or symptoms of illness, or may have had a possible exposure to COVID-19 or other illness. Please talk to your child about the importance of wearing their mask at school and keeping social distance during the day. Please consider vaccination if you or your child are eligible and have not received it. Please continue to wear your mask in public places and practice social distancing and other safety measures. We can continue to have a safe and healthy school year but we all need to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Pinon Unified Community, On the afternoon of Wednesday, August 4, Pinon Elementary was notified of a student that tested positive for COVID-19. The student was screened upon entering the school. The student was taken by a guardian to Pinon Clinic and received a rapid COVID-19 test. The test result was positive. Contact tracing was conducted by the PES staff and all students and staff that are considered a “contact” or “exposure” were notified to be monitored and tested. The classroom and other areas of potential contact were thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. Confidential or identifying student information cannot be shared but everyone involved as a possible exposure has been identified and notified by the PES staff and IHS will also conduct contact tracing and notifications as necessary. The three schools in PUSD have protocols in place for students that become ill during the school day that include isolation, parental notification and contact tracing. We ask your assistance to ensure that your students DO NOT come to school if they have any signs or symptoms of illness, or may have had a possible exposure to COVID-19. If students are identified that have symptoms of illness during the school day a parent will be contacted to pick them up and we will not allow them back on campus until they have a medical clearance. Update on PHS positive student case from Friday, July 30: All students identified as a contact were tested for COVID-19 and the test results were NEGATIVE. The safety and mitigation measures at the schools do work to prevent the spread of illness and do keep students safe. We need everyone in the PUSD community to do their part to keep students safe at school. Please consider vaccination if you are eligible and have not received it. Please continue to wear your mask in public places and practice social distancing and other safety measures, especially when traveling off of the Navajo Nation.
