Following the weekend, the Fairfield school was made aware of a couple potential covid cases that, if positive, could impact students in grades 7-12 and one elementary class.  Due to the short week followed by an extended holiday, the administration with support of the school board and Teton County Health, implemented their remote learning plan for those students and staff.  This was a proactive and preventative measure taken to minimize any potential spread that takes advantage of the holiday schedule to minimize the loss of learning time and get students back in school earlier than waiting for results, then taking action. Successful grouping and cohorting of the remaining PK - 6 grades has made it safe for their continued education in school for the remainder of the short week. We will continue to monitor the situation and update our community and families as more information becomes available.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

On Thursday, November 19th, 2020 the Fairfield School District was notified that a school employee tested positive for the Covid-19 virus, which was confirmed by the Teton County Health Department. No students have been in close contact with the employee.
The employee last worked in person on Monday, November 16th, and as a precautionary measure, Teton County Health and the Fairfield School District isolated and requested testing from one other staff member for Covid-19.

Any potential staff or students at risk will be notified by the school and/or the health department to determine a safe and appropriate course of action. Due to the isolated circumstances, this limited exposure will not require the closure of any classes, cohorts, or school functions at this time. This notification is to provide full transparency and communication for the safety of our students, staff and community members.

We have implemented the Center for Disease Control safety precautions. In partnership with Teton County Health Department, we are continuing to provide a safe learning environment for all of our students. The limited area accessed prior to isolation has been cleansed and sanitized.

We continue to encourage all parents/guardians and staff to monitor students closely for any signs of potential illness. Students should remain at home if they are exhibiting any of the symptoms of Covid-19 including fever, headache, new or persistent cough, loss of taste or smell, fatigue and/or stomach issues.

We would like to take this time to stress the importance of utilizing preventative measures such as, handwashing, social distancing and face coverings. Any success in preventing another outbreak depends on us. In order to keep our students and staff in school and safe it will take all of us to do our part in preventing the spread of the virus.

School officials will continue to monitor the situation and will provide further information if and when it becomes available.

Sincerely,

Dustin Gordon
