Dear Hayward Community School District Families and Staff:

***STARTING NOVEMBER 10TH, THE COVID NOTICES WILL GO OUT AT 5:00PM WHEN WE HAVE NEW UPDATES.***

This letter is to notify you that we recently became aware that one Intermediate School student and two Middle School students have tested positive for COVID-19.We are keeping them and the families in our thoughts and hoping for a speedy recovery. In accordance with our protocols, we have reported this information to the Sawyer County Health Department (SCHD). The SCHD is conducting contact tracing, any person who is identified as a close contact to these people will be notified directly by the Hayward Community School District. If you have further questions regarding the close contact identification, please call Sawyer County Public Health at 715-638-3353.

We are working with Sawyer County Health Officer and are taking all recommended precautions to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and community, including following the recommended guidance with respect to isolation and quarantine procedures for all impacted students. Our staff will work around the clock to ensure a deep cleaning and disinfection of the school, in addition to the regular cleaning/disinfecting schedule of all District facilities.

The District advises parents to keep students home from school if they are sick, and encourages frequent handwashing, covering coughs and sneezes, use of face coverings in public and staying home as much as possible. If a student is diagnosed with COVID-19 or if they had contact with someone who tested positive, they are advised to notify the school immediately.

In addition, if your child has any of these symptoms, please contact your medical provider: ● Temperature of 100°F or higher ● Fever ● Chills ● Cough ● Shortness of breath ● Difficulty breathing ● Fatigue ● Muscle or body aches ● Headache ● Loss of taste or smell ● Sore throat ● Congestion or runny nose ● Nausea or vomiting ● Diarrhea

We continue to work closely with the Sawyer County Health Department. We urge you to monitor your children for any symptoms. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Sincerely,
