Sedro-Woolley School District

Every student graduates with the knowledge and skills for future learning and success

    • Dashboard shows confirmed positive cases of Sedro-Woolley School District students or staff engaged in in-person learning or work at a district site. If a case is determined to have no contacts and no closures are required in a small in-person learning community it may not be possible to share data and also protect confidential health information. The Washington State Department of Health small numbers reporting guidelines provides more information about data reporting and protecting confidential health information.

      Notification Protocol

      We work closely with the health department when there is a confirmed case associated with our schools. Here are the steps we follow for confirmed cases of COVID-19.

      1. When we learn of a case of COVID-19, we first confirm with the health department that the confirmed case is associated with our schools.
      2. Our schools each have COVID site safety teams who help initiate contact tracing. If there are close contacts of a confirmed case, we work with the health department to notify staff and parents/guardians that there has been contact with a confirmed case.
      3. Next steps are determined by the health department, which may include recommendations for COVID testing, isolation and/or quarantine. We communicate directly to impacted staff and families and share resources according to the guidance of the health department.
      4. In some cases, a group of students will shift to remote learning for a period of time designated by the health department.

      Terminology

      • Exposure or contact is usually defined as being within six feet or more and spending 15 minutes or longer with someone who has tested positive for COVID.
      • Quarantine is when someone is asked to stay home due to ​exposure to someone who is infected, because they could become contagious.
      • ​Isolation is when some is asked to stay home because of illness or possible illness, ​and they are contagious.
      • One confirmed case is not an outbreak. An outbreak is defined as two or more cases with transmission occurring between them.
