COVID-19 Incidents

All confirmed COVID-19 incidents related to USD 250 will be posted to this page. Once the district learns of a COVID-19 incident the following steps will be followed:

  • Isolate individuals if present
  • Consult with Local Health Officers
  • Clean and treat any affected areas
  • Contact trace within USD 250 to determine close contacts
  • Immediately notify anyone determined to have had close contact
  • Notify anyone who may have been in proximity
  • Advise of any required self-quarantine
  • Follow any additional recommendations from CHCSEK

Close Contact is defined as any individual who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to positive specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.

Exposure Fewer than 6 feet away for more than 10 minutes to an individual who have tested positive or has been exposed to a known positive case and is exhibiting COVID-like symptoms, during their infectious period (two days prior to their test or first symptoms, until no longer showing symptoms or ten days after their positive test).

Non-Close Contact Outside of 6 feet for a brief period of time. A non-close contact would have no known exposure.

BUILDING LEARNING MODEL/RESPONSE LEVEL

To assist families in the quick reference of what type of response is being used and what learning model each building is in, we will use color codes that everyone is familiar with: Green; Yellow; and Red. These color codes coordinate with the Return to School Plan. Please note that this chart indicates the building majority and does not reflect single classrooms or a family's decision to be in the Remote Learning Model. 

BUILDING MODEL/RESPONSE LEVEL
Pittsburg High School
Pittsburg Community Middle School
George Nettels Elementary
Lakeside Elementary

At home screening

The district asks for the cooperation of families when sending students to school. We ask that parents and students go through the following screening process before leaving your home. 

Is child fever free (less than 100.4 without the use of medications)?

If not, child should seek medical care in order to return to school.

Is your child free from all of the following symptoms?

Fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea?

Has your child had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19?

If so, please follow all health department or physician ordered quarantining directions.

Did your child recently return from any of the high-risk travel locations or travel internationally?

If so, Kansas requires that you quarantine for 14 days after returning from high-risk travel locations.

Does your child have their mask to wear to school?
