School officials report on first weeks of classes
August 13, 2020
School officials reported the opening two weeks of classes went smoothly with both students and staff members in all schools responding well to temperature checks. Extra staff hired continues to assist with cleaning daily.
An automated call received at the Lewis County Herald last week indicated a Lewis County Schools’ student had tested positive for COVID-19.
Protocol for students and faculty exposed to the virus involves a quarantine for either 48 hours prior to the onset of symptoms or 48 hours from the test date. Students sent home become virtual students during quarantine.
