Good evening, Grand View School has recently confirmed positive cases in middle school students from two different grades and cohort classes. Those two students will isolate at home as recommended by the Health Department. We have done contact tracing on both cases. Our stringent policies on social distancing, seating charts, mandatory masks, hand-washing, classroom cleaning and line spacing make us think that no quarantining is necessary. Still, the Grand View Health Aide, Ladonna Walls is contacting families of students in those two cohort groups. We are giving parents the option of keeping their child at home to quarantine. If you are called and you elect to quarantine your child, please call the school and let Davada Davis know that your child will be a virtual learner for a short time. Mrs. Davis 918-456-5131 Ext 800 If you have questions about COVID or quarantine timelines, please call Mrs. Walls 918-456-5131 Ext 505. Thank you for continuing your hard work to keep Grand View safe and healthy for our students, staff and families.
Hello Grand View families: We continue to learn about strategies that impact our ability to avoid COVID and how to track and isolate it. A couple of plans we are implementing: - We are going to the same seating charts for every classroom. - We will use the same order when we line-up for meals, class changes, or to go outside. Experts say this plan will allow us to contact-trace specific groups. That will let us identify a small group for quarantine, instead of an entire class. Two more very IMPORTANT points: - If your child was exposed to someone that feels ill, or is getting tested it means; they think they have COVID. Therefore, your child should stay home. - Don't send a child to school and then go for your COVID test. Assume you have COVID and keep them with you until results come back negative. - In the event you hear someone is getting tested after your child was in close contact, you should be especially aware of your child's symptoms. You should also immediately begin a contact-trace of your own. This helps us determine who may be affected if the test results are positive. These strategies will help to reduce transmission of COVID at home and at school. It will help us keep our school open when others may close.
Cherokee Nation Health Services is offering after hours drive-thru flu clinics at ALL Cherokee Nation Health Centers (excluding Gadugi Employee Health Center) on Tuesday, Nov. 10 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. Flu season is in full swing.
