Windfall School is committed to the safety, education, and well-being of all students and staff. While changes have been frequent due to COVID-19, our goal is to be as transparent as possible with parents and guardians when it comes to health and safety within Windfall School.
The Ohio Department of Health has issued an executive order that requires school districts to put in place a COVID-19 Reporting System. Should any announcements need to be made in regards to COVID-19 in Windfall School, they will be posted here. This information will be updated as needed.
The current active Covid-19 cases for students of Windfall School: 0
The cumulative Covid-19 cases for students of Windfall School: 1
The current active Covid-19 cases for staff of Windfall School: 0
The cumulative Covid-19 cases for staff of Windfall School: 1
Last change in the district’s dashboard status: Nov. 24, 2020
A public dashboard is also on the State of Ohio website that will include the number of diagnosed cases of COVID-19 in both staff and students per school district in each county.
If a student is diagnosed with COVID-19, the parent/guardian should notify their child’s school within 24-hours of receiving a positive test or clinical diagnosis. The parent (with help from the school nurse) will need to complete and submit a COVID-19 Reporting Form. This information will then be sent to the Health Department for any needed follow-up.
If Windfall School receives notification of a confirmed positive Covid-19 result, an initial phone call followed by a written notification will be given to parents and guardians of all students, as well as staff members, who specifically shared a classroom space or participated in a school activity while the positive case could have been infectious. During the phone call, specific instructions related to the situation will be provided.
UPDATE: As of November 16, 2020, Windfall School is now responsible for contract tracing and calling the parents of any exposed student to notify them of the need for the student to quarantine at home for 14 days from the last contact with the positive individual. The Health Department will no longer be calling families of direct contacts. After the school notifies parents, the Health Department will then send a follow-up letter confirming the dates of quarantine.
If Windfall School or the Health Department does not specifically make contact with a you, your student was determined not to have been directly exposed to an infected individual.
General notification will also be provided to all staff, parents and guardians of students in the whole school building about the positive test result. Specific names of students or staff will never be shared in these notices due to applicable HIPAA and FERPA laws.
