Fremont Elementary School has confirmed four cases of COVID-19 requiring approximately 20% of the student population to quarantine. Out of an abundance of caution, the Carson City School District will close the school to all students Thursday and Friday for thorough cleaning and sanitizing per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
With the exception of those considered close contacts, all students and employees are expected to return to school Monday, Aug. 30. Those students who were exposed and need to quarantine temporarily will transition to a modified learning model for the remainder of their isolation periods. Parents and families are asked to work with school officials to help their students efficiently learn while in quarantine.
Parents play a critical role in helping schools remain open for in-person learning. The district pleads that parents complete a Daily Self-Screening each morning before school and keep any child home if they experience any cold or flu symptoms.
