Messiah did an outstanding job this year collecting donations for the American Heart Association.  Our total is $15,259.51!!!  WOW!!  

They will be able to do a lot of research and provide for others in many ways. We are so thankful to all of those who were able to contribute to this wonderful cause. Great job Messiah students….families….and friends!! It’s especially wonderful to hear students continue to talk about how they are going to keep their hearts healthy!
Top donation collectors for our school are:  
Eli B. - $1202, Kaden D. - $870, Rowyn B. - $850, and Isla I. - $743.

The top collectors for each grade will get to be a guest P.E. “teacher” on Friday….complete with their own whistle.  Fun times ahead keeping our hearts healthy.

This week's Covid-19 Case Count Summary
New positive cases this week: 0

New positive cases this week: 3

New cases traced to contact at school: 2

Though the DHM and Mask Mandate have both been dropped, Isolation and close contact protocols in school settings still apply for those who have contracted or been exposed to COVID-19. 

For Individuals That Test Positive for COVID-19 - ISOLATION
If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, they need to stay home for 5 days. The start of the days differs depending on if the person was symptomatic or asymptomatic. For a person who is asymptomatic, but tests positive, Day 0 is the date the sample was collected. For a person with COVID symptoms, Day 0 is the day the first obvious symptom occurred. 
  • If they do not have symptoms or if symptoms are resolving (meeting the school’s regular illness criteria for returning to school), they can return to school on day 6. However, they must wear a well fitting mask through day 10 starting on the day the test sample was collected.
  • If a student or staff cannot wear a well fitting mask, they must be excluded and must isolate for 10 days.
Managing Close Contact Exposures – QUARANTINE 
Students and staff do not have to be excluded if they have had a close contact exposure but must wear a mask for 10 days while at school or participating in school activities and should, if possible, be tested (PCR test) on day 5 after the exposure.
  • Students and staff who have on-going high-risk exposure to a positive individual who is unable to isolate (example: household) should remain at home until the positive individual completes 5 days of isolation. Extra vigilance on screening for symptoms when they return is advisable.
  • If symptoms develop, they must be excluded and be tested using a PCR test. 
  • If a student or staff cannot wear a well fitting mask, they must be excluded for 10 days.
