Dear Cros-Lex Families:
On February 18, 2021, the District Administration received notification through the Sanilac County Health Department of three new presumed positive COVID-19 cases among students, two at Frostick Elementary, and one at Croswell-Lexington Middle School. We also have one confirmed positive COVID-19 case with a staff member at Frostick Elementary School.
We are working closely with the Sanilac County Health Department to identify Close Contacts of School Associated Cases of COVID-19. Based on the Sanilac County Health Department guidelines associated with these positive and presumed positive cases, and the required contact tracing protocols, we anticipate students at both schools to be asked to quarantine.
The Frostick and Croswell Lexington Middle School administration and/or Sanilac County Health Department as a part of the COVID-19 investigation process will notify anyone identified as a Close Contact. Please answer the phone if the School Administration or County Health Department contacts you, as a contact tracer may be trying to reach you with important information. If you are contacted by the health department and asked to quarantine, please refer to the link HERE for further information. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services February 4, 2021 Emergency Order under MCL 333.2253 can be viewed HERE.
We recommend taking action to help limit the spread of COVID-19, even if staff members or students are not experiencing symptoms:
Wear a mask (covering mouth and nose) while in public places or if people who do not live with you must visit your home.
Practice social distancing (maintaining a distance of 6 feet apart).
Practice frequent handwashing (using soap for 20 seconds or hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol).
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or with the inside of your elbow and immediately wash your hands.
Stay home if you are sick; you can also follow the link to get tested or call 810.206.0682.
Thank you for understanding that, due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the names of the individuals with COVID-19. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you. With your participation, we believe we can maintain a safe environment, while also providing quality education.
As always, please contact your school or the district office with any questions. For any COVID-19 specific questions, please reach out to the Sanilac County Health Department at 810.270.5889. You can also call the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 Hotline at 888-535-6136 or visit Michigan.gov/Coronavirus for answers to your COVID-19 questions.
