Dear WCHS Families:

I wanted to make you aware that a student at WCHS has tested positive for COVID-19. The student was in the building last week. The student 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.

We have contacted the Johnson County Department of Health and started the process of contact tracing. We are following the guidance of the health department and those individuals who were in close contact (less than six feet for more than fifteen minutes) with the student have been notified.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind families that students should not attend school if there is a confirmed COVID-19 case in their home, if their student has pending test results of a COVID-19 test, or if their student 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
