MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT
October 16, 2020
Dear Faculty/Staff, and Parents,
We have received notification that an individual at Pro-Vision Academy has tested positive for COVID-19. The affected individual was last present on campus on October 15, 2020 and is now self-isolating at home.
Through review, individuals who were determined to be in close contact with the affected individual were notified directly of the need to self-quarantine and monitor for symptoms. If you did not receive that separate notification, you/your child are not considered to be a close contact.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the virus is thought to spread mainly between people who are in close contact (within about 6 feet for more than 15 minutes and considering other mitigating factors at times or other specific contact as determined through review) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
Pro-Vision Educational Services Charter School District is taking significant precautionary measures to keep everyone safe. We have screening methods for students and staff. Our custodial team cleans daily and decontaminates areas when necessary. We are also in contact with the Public Health Department and will take the steps necessary to protect the health of our students and staff.
An individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 may return to school 10 days from the date of test and when symptoms have improved and if the person has been fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medication.
The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to the regular seasonal influenza and include fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. Some have reported additional symptoms, such as a runny nose, sore throat, nausea, lethargy, lack of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea. Fever of 100.0F or above is a symptom of COVID-19. Individuals who exhibit signs of COVID-19 should contact their healthcare provider. Families of students exhibiting flu-like symptoms or staff exhibiting flu-like symptoms are asked to contact the campus principal or school nurse.
Your safety is our top priority. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to Dr. Phyllis Tyler, Principal or Dr. L. S. Spencer, Human Resources Coordinator.
