A Message From Superintendent Tracy Wrend
Because we know all families appreciate clear information about school operations, we want to inform you that a member of the PAML school community received a positive COVID-19 test result today. The individual has been quarantined for several days and is doing well. As we always do, we ask you to extend care and support to the individual, their family, and all affected by COVID-19 at this time.
To learn more about COVID-19 response and prevention at PAML, please visit PAML’s news and announcements on our website.
Across our schools, we have noted an increased incidence of close contact with individuals who tested positive for COVID-19. All of the contacts are occurring outside of school, and we are monitoring closely for the need for any action at the school level.
The increased community spread highlights the need for all to be vigilant in following all health and safety guidance from the Vermont Department of Health.
- Do not gather outside your household except for essential purposes. Stay home when sick. Wear a mask, wash hands frequently, and ensure physical distancing with others.
- Contact your primary care provider if you have questions about your or your student’s health, or if anyone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms.
- Cooperate with contact tracing and contact Jordan Myerson (802-585-4087) if your student or someone in your household has symptoms of COVID-19, received a positive COVID-19 test result, or they were a close contact of someone who received a positive test result.
Families that are impacted by quarantine or the challenges of COVID-19 in general, can access Lamoille County’s hub for resources and support here.
Thank you all for your continued efforts to keep one another safe and our schools open for in-person instruction!
