Dear WES Families:

I wanted to make you aware that a staff member at Whiteland Elementary has tested positive for COVID-19. The staff member had no close contacts; therefore, no contact tracing or additional exclusions of students or staff from school were necessary. The teacher will remain home in isolation for at least 10 days AND is 24-hours fever free in accordance with the Indiana State Department of Health's guidance.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind families and staff that students and staff should not attend school if there is a confirmed COVID-19 case in their home, if student or staff has pending test results of a COVID-19 test, or if student or staff is exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19.

Should you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact your building administrators. I would remind you that we cannot share a lot of information due to HIPAA Privacy Rules that establish national standards to protect individuals' medical records and other personal health information.

Patrick Spray, Superintendent
