Dear Main Street Community:  


 
Thank you for your continued partnership as we work to maintain safe and healthy school environments 
during this challenging time. We are working closely with our local and state health agencies when a 
potential or confirmed case of COVID-19 impacts our school community. To this end, we are writing to 
share that a person at Main Street School has been diagnosed with COVID-19, requiring that several of 
our teachers quarantine and teach remotely until October 15.  
 
We still look forward to welcoming our students back to in-person learning tomorrow and have increased 
staff available to support classrooms that are impacted. Additionally, out of an abundance of caution, our 
building has undergone a deep sanitization and cleaning. If your student’s classroom or services will be 
impacted by this event, you will be receiving an additional email to notify you of any changes. 
 
Each case of COVID-19 is interviewed by public health. As part of this public health investigation: 
● The person diagnosed is being kept home from school or work until they are no longer infectious.  
● The person's activities when they could have spread COVID-19 were assessed.  
● The people who were close contacts of the person with COVID-19 are instructed to stay home 
from school for 14 days after the exposure. This is called quarantine.  
 
It remains important that students and families continue to follow all safety protocols, wear a mask, wash 
hands frequently, and maintain social distancing as much as possible. Families should also screen their 
students at home every day before sending them to school. ​Please click here to download our 
home-screen checklist to use as a guide to screen your child on their in-person learning days. 
 
Again, thank you for your continued support as we navigate the complexities of the coronavirus pandemic 
and ensuring the safety of our community. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to 
contact me directly. 
 
Sincerely, 
Laura Hess 
Executive Director of Special Education
