Dear Parent / Guardian,
We were notified by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) of a lab-confirmed case of COVID-19 in a member of the P.E.A.S.E Academy school community with exposure date(s) of 11/11/2020 and 11/12/2020. For privacy reasons, we cannot share details about the status of the person. At this time, they have been advised to stay home and away from other people (isolate). We have worked with MDH to identify and notify those who had close contact with the person who has COVID-19. The risk of exposure for other people present in the building on that date is no greater than the risk of contracting the virus in the general community. If you or your child were not notified that you had close contact with the person, you should still monitor for symptoms of illness, but do not need to stay home unless symptoms develop. If symptoms develop, stay home and consult with your health care provider to determine if medical evaluation is needed. We are working closely with MDH to monitor the situation. If you have questions, contact our Building COVID-19 Coordinator, Catie Locker. Thank you for helping to keep our school community safe.

Sincerely,
Michael Durchslag
Building Director
