Dear IHC Community,
Immaculate Heart Central was notified by Jefferson County Public Health of two positive cases of COVID-19 affecting our students. One is a student at the Elementary and the other is a student at the Jr/Sr High. The Jr/Sr High student was not in school during the infectious period. Therefore, there is no risk of exposure to our Jr/Sr High students and staff. The Elementary student was in school. The administration has been in contact with families whose students may have been exposed. In addition, the classrooms have been cleaned and sanitized.
Jefferson County Public Health will conduct contact tracing for those individuals who may have been exposed. The contact tracing process identifies anyone who comes into close contact with someone who has COVID-19. Contact tracing slows the spread of COVID-19 and helps protect you, your family, and our community. If you are contacted by Jefferson County Public Health, please follow their recommendations.
As much as Immaculate Heart Central is attempting to be transparent in this matter, we are faced with competing rights of our students and staff. IHC is not permitted to release any additional information.
As always, we appreciate your continued support and understanding. We will continue to work together to ensure the safety of our students and staff as we move forward.
