Dear Parents and Guardians

Trinity High School now has our fifth confirmed case of COVID-19 for the 2020-2021 school year (as a reminder, the first two student siblings did not have any exposure to Trinity). The teacher last taught on Monday, October 19th, having been notified early in the morning of the 20th of her exposure. The teacher who is positive was not symptomatic at school at any time. Please pray for the quick recovery of our Trinity teacher.  

According to the guidelines published by the CDC and after consultation with the Cook County Health Department, due to our adherence of social distancing and masks, it has been determined that the greater Trinity community at large has had a low-risk exposure and does not need to quarantine. Any community members in the same classes, lunch circle, or athletic team with the positive student have been contacted directly by Trinity High School. 

Here is reminder of quarantine directives:

  • 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 (14 days).

  • 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.

Stay well,

Mrs. Carey
Dean of Students
