Positive Covid Case 2/17/22

Dear Gess Families,

Today, we sent home two students who tested positive for Covid-19. We have followed through with our mitigation protocols and are working to identify any close contacts.

I would like to thank everyone for the effort your make to follow the at home screening procedures and the effort you all make to keep your students' home when they are ill or being tested for COVID-19.

To offset the hardship of seeking a testing location the Chewelah School District is offering COVID-19 testing for families. Please contact your school building if testing is needed (509)-685-6800 ext.4015.

Thank you,

Dear Gess Families,



Monday, February 7, 2022, throughout the day we were notified by different families that their students had tested positive for COVID. Of the ten positive tests logged on Monday, only one student had been here at school. The student who tested positive at school has been contact traced and those close contacts have been notified. Gess Staff appreciate the effort families make to keep their children home when they are ill. These efforts combined with our Covid-19 protocols are supporting the ability to continue face to face instruction.
