Dear FAPS Families,
Today, May 12th, the Genesee County Health Department (GCHD), reduced the quarantine window from fourteen days to ten days. From this point on, those students that are deemed a close contact with another person that is COVID-19 positive will be quarantined by the GCHD for ten days.
A close contact is now defined as a person that is:
- Within three feet of a COVID-19 positive person in a regular classroom or on a bus.
- Within six feet of a COVID-19 positive person in a band or choir class, a Physical Education class held in a gymnasium or another setting in which there is significant physical activity.
Beginning tomorrow, we will be contacting families of students that may return under these new local health department guidelines.
The Board of Education and District administration thank you for your overall support and ask for your continued patience in navigating the current and future guidelines to maximize safety as health authorities are gradually easing restrictions. We know that as greater portions of the population become vaccinated and other safety measures remain in place to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and its variants, we will be working towards normality.
We are looking forward to enjoying the end of year events and now know we cannot take these moments for granted as we reflect on the past school year and celebrate the amazing accomplishments of our students.Sincerely,
Dr. Adam Hartley
