The following statement was posted by Lincoln County School District #2 on Thursday afternoon.
Lincoln County School District #2 has received confirmation from our state public health office of an employee at Star Valley Middle School and one student at Star Valley High School testing positive for COVID-19.
The state health department will be contacting those families, within 48 hours, whose students may have been in close contact with these individuals. You will only be contacted if it’s determined your student was in close contact.
Due to confidentiality of these individuals, we are unable to answer specific questions.
The District is continuing to take measures to protect our campuses such as additional deep-cleaning and sanitization.
We ask our staff and students to remember the importance of at-home screening, social distancing, and face coverings.
