Positive Case Notification 3/18/21

18 March 2021

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

This letter is to inform you that, today, we learned one (1) individual of the T. Baldwin Demarest Elementary School has tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The Health Department has been notified.

All close contacts were identified and notified. Those identified have been instructed to quarantine for a specified period of time. If you have not been notified, then your child has not been determined to be a close contact. As a District, we respect the privacy of individuals who have tested positive and those identified as close contacts. We ask that you do the same.

As a repeated reminder, if your child develops one or more COVID-19 related symptoms, please do not send your child to school and contact your doctor, as well as the school nurse.  It is important to inform the school nurse if your child was tested for COVID-19, as well as to share the results. If you are awaiting testing results, please do not send your child to school until you receive the results. Please feel free to contact Ms. Lehmann (TBD) at 201-664-7176 ext. 1104 / lehmann@nvnet.org or Ms. McCarthy (CDW) at 201-664-1475 ext. 2103 / mccarthy@nvnet.org.

We encourage parents/guardians and students to continue to follow the CDC-promoted safeguards, such as:

  • Staying home when you are sick;
  • Washing hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds;
  • Covering coughs and sneezes and properly disposing of tissues;
  • Limiting close contact with people who are sick and not sharing food, drinks, and utensils;
  • Practicing social distancing;
  • Wearing a face covering while in school; and
  • Continuing to monitor your health for symptoms.


You can continue to assist us by remaining vigilant and sensible in your approach to dealing with this public-health situation.

As always, we appreciate your support and cooperation.

Respectfully,

Danielle M. Da Giau, Ed.D. 
Superintendent of Schools/Acting Principal, CDW
Old Tappan Public School District
