Confirmed Coronavirus Cases / District Dashboard


COVID 19 Dashboard Updated 10/29/2020

 

***The Princeton COVID-19 Dashboard will be updated to reflect current cases weekly.  Check on Thursday mornings, for the most current data.***

Each week, we share the number of first-hand, confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 and the number of quarantines in Princeton City Schools.

We continue to monitor the numbers of quarantines in our communities, and we are aware of the educational, social, and emotional ramifications of staying home for 14 days. Students in quarantine should follow the at-home learning plan and stay connected via online platforms or telephone and email correspondence with our teachers and counselors.  Please contact your school building principal if you have additional questions or concerns.

****Per Devin Knutson, the point of contact at Hamilton County Public Health Department, PCSD does not need to send letters home regarding remote learners that have no contact in the school buildings, as of September 23, 2020.****

Dear Princeton Parents, Guardians, and Community Members:

Please see the attached letter from Hamilton County Public Health (HCPH) regarding a confirmed case of COVID-19 at Princeton High School. 

When we were notified of the confirmed case today, we immediately responded by enacting the COVID-19 response protocol set forth by Hamilton County Public Health (HCPH), including contact tracing. Additionally, as an extra precaution, Princeton High School custodial staff closed the areas this individual had visited and thoroughly deep cleaned these spaces. Princeton High School will remain open at this time. The individual was last on campus on September 29, 2020.

The purpose of this letter is not to frighten you. We are working closely with the Health Commissioners from the City of Springdale and HCPH. Anyone identified as a close contact has been contacted. Unless you receive official notice from Hamilton County Public Health, your student is not considered a close contact and therefore does not need to quarantine.

We will keep you updated on any developments and additional procedures for the coming weeks. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 513-864-1000 or tburton@vikingmail.org.

Dear Princeton Parents, Guardians, and Community Members:

On September 15, 2020, the Princeton City School District was notified that one of our Princeton Community Middle School (PCMS) students has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). 

The student was last on campus on September 4, 2020. The onset of symptoms occurred during their remote-learning week. The symptoms presented on September 10. There has been no exposure at the school building.

The Hamilton County Health Department has been notified and will contact anyone who needs to quarantine due to close contact.

COVID-19 is thought to be spread via person-to-person contact through contaminated air droplets from coughing and sneezing by an infected person. As with controlling the spread of other viruses, we urge everyone to take the following preventive measures:

  • Wash your hands regularly, especially after using the restroom and before preparing or consuming food. Using soap and hot water, wash for about 20 seconds. Be sure to also wash your fingertips.
  • Avoid coughing or sneezing into your hands or in the air. Always try to cough or sneeze into a tissue, then throw the tissue away. If you don’t have a tissue, cough/sneeze into your arm.
  • As much as you can, avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.

The symptoms of coronavirus are similar to the regular seasonal influenza and include fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. Some people with coronavirus have reported additional symptoms, such as a runny nose, sore throat, nausea, lethargy, lack of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea. In some situations, the virus can develop into pneumonia. 

Individuals who need medical care should call their medical provider to report their illness prior to seeking care at a clinic, physician’s office, or hospital. Parents of students exhibiting flu-like symptoms or staff exhibiting flu-like symptoms are asked to contact the Hamilton County or Springdale Health Department.

We are closely monitoring this situation and will provide you with updates, as needed. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 513-864-1000 or tburton@vikingmail.org.

Respectfully,

Tom Burton

Superintendent
