St. Johns County Schools Change How They Notify Parents, Deploy Online COVID-19 Reporting Form
ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Florida. – The St. Johns County School District is changing the way it reports positive coronavirus cases in its classrooms.
The district will now notify all parents in each class if there is a positive case with another student. Previously, the district only notified people who were in close contact with a student.
According to a letter sent to parents Thursday evening, the district is also asking parents to use an optional online form to report positive cases for students.
“By making this adjustment, we can notify parents more quickly and efficiently,” the district said. “We continue to ask that you monitor your child for symptoms and keep them home if they are unwell. We want students to learn in school and we also want children to be healthy and safe.
If parents still wish to discuss their child’s COVID-19 scenario in detail, they can bypass the form and call the District’s COVID Support Team at 904-547-8230.
The district also has a “Positive Student Return to School Calculator,” which can be used to calculate when students can return to school after a positive test result.
As of Thursday, there were a total of 105 COVID-19 positive employees and 776 COVID-19 positive students in the district.
