Dear JCSD Families:
The purpose of this letter is to provide information to our families from the JCSD administration. On the morning of Friday, October 2, 2020, Juniata County School District learned that a Juniata Elementary School student had tested positive for COVlD-19. The student was last in school on September 29, 2020.
As a result of this positive test, contact tracing following the PA Department of Health (DOH) Guidelines is being conducted. The DOH has been in contact with the Juniata County School District administration on Friday to begin monitoring this situation and will continue to provide guidance.
As of October 2, 2020, there is only one active, positive student COVID-19 case in the district. Also, there are no JCSD employees that have tested positive for COVID-19 to date for this school year.
If you have a student that is being evaluated and tested for COVID-19 infection, please notify the school nurse and keep that student at home while awaiting test results.
