Dear Students, Families, Faculty and Staff,
Trinity High School now has our first and second confirmed cases of COVID-19 for the 2020-2021 school year. The infected students are siblings and are currently recovering and have not experienced severe symptoms.
There has been absolutely no exposure to the greater Trinity community thanks to the vigilance and responsibility of the family. The parents/guardians of these two students realized there was a positive case in the household on Saturday, August 22, 2020, notified Trinity immediately, and began their required fourteen day quarantine and, therefore, the students have not yet been on Trinity’s campus this school year. Per our protocol, the family notified Trinity that these two students became positive for COVID-19 during their quarantine period. The students have not had any social interactions with other students in the past three weeks, and have not been on campus for any reason prior to the start of the school year (athletics, mentorship). Please pray for their quick recovery.
We are greatly appreciative for this family’s honest and prompt communication to Trinity. It is with this type of vigilance that we are able to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
As a reminder, if anyone in the Trinity community becomes positive or is presumed positive, or has any exposure to someone who is positive or is presumed positive, it is imperative they do not come to school and that their parent/guardian notifies Trinity immediately to discuss the quarantine period.
Any community members who are experiencing any COVID-related symptoms (see your Appian symptom tracker questionnaire) but have not had any known exposure must stay home until they are symptom-free for 24 hours. Anyone experiencing COVID-related symptoms that persist longer than 24 hours, or who have symptoms and a possible exposure, should not return to Trinity, should seek medical attention, and should continue to communicate their status to Trinity High School.
