  • NEW COVID-19 COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS EFFECTIVE FEB. 21
     
    As you may know, the district maintains a dashboard on our website that lists all positive cases in our schools at www.pcsb.org/covid19cases. This dashboard is updated each work/school day and is searchable by location and date.
     
    Additionally, in an effort to keep everyone overly-informed, principals have been sending out schoolwide messages every time a positive case is confirmed in their school. In many cases this is leading to families receiving multiple calls and emails per week and is causing confusion and message fatigue. We recognize that sending too many messages reduces their effectiveness. We have been asked to simplify the process to ensure families only receive the most essential communications, so we will be updating our protocols moving forward.
     
    Beginning February 21, we will do the following:
    • Notify by phone and email any student or staff member who is identified as a direct contact and must quarantine.
    • Update the district’s COVID Public Dashboard every weekday at noon with cases confirmed the previous day.
    • Add a link to the district’s COVID Dashboard (www.pcsb.org/covid19cases) to the homepage of every school’s website.
     
    Beginning February 21, if you do not receive a call, then your student has not been deemed a close contact of a positive case and should attend school normally. If at any time you would like additional information about the number of cases at your student’s school, or the safety protocols being followed, we encourage you to submit a question on the Dashboard webpage or reach out to the school principal.
     
    As always, we ask everyone to monitor themselves for any sign of illness. If we all do our part, we can continue to keep our school family healthy and safe.
     
    Thank you
