3/21/20 - Parent Letter regarding confirmed COVID-19 case (Click for more information)
Dear Middleton School District Parent, Guardian & Staff Member:
Middleton School District is committed to keeping families informed, and it’s our goal to be transparent within the bounds of our students’, staffs’, and communities rights to confidentiality. We are writing to update you on the most current developments regarding the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Today, we were informed by the Southwest District Health Department that an individual who is associated with our Middleton Middle School community has tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Please keep him/her in your prayers and thoughts. I know this is a difficult time for many in the Viking community.
Please see the attached letter from the Southwest District Health Department with additional information. Health officials are working with the Middleton School District to identify and contact those who may have come into close contact with the individual. An epidemiologist from Southwest District Health will be notifying parents, staff, and faculty who had closest contact to the individual testing positive for COVID-19.
We recognize the significant impact this news could mean to our community. Our priority is to provide an excellent education in a safe and healthy environment.
Our custodial staff will be in our buildings next week deep cleaning our buildings, following federal guidelines. All staff members have been instructed to stay out of the buildings during spring break. The affected school will be sanitized, following the direction of Southwest District Health Department.
We continue to encourage our students, staff & community to stay healthy as we move forward in this new “normal,” hoping it will be temporary.
We will continue monitoring any developments and plan accordingly in partnership with local, state, and federal authorities. We will update you as we have more information.
In the meantime, please seek information from credible sources during these challenging times:
Remember, we are Middleton Vikings! We encourage you to continue to take care of yourselves and one another.
