 Office of the Superintendent

December 29, 2020

Dear Parents and Staff,

We understand that last Saturday’s message was mistakenly sent twice to many of you. There was only one positive test result at Valley View. We apologize for any confusion. 

Since then, it has been brought to our attention that an individual at Bayberry has tested positive for COVID-19. Fortunately, the individual was not in school during the infectious period, and accordingly, there are no close contacts in the school setting. The individual will not be present in school until the requirements for a safe return are satisfied. Meanwhile, we will continue to follow our strict cleaning protocols in school. 

We are committed to maintaining confidentiality of the members of our school community and cannot provide any additional information. We wish a full and speedy recovery for the individual who is ill.

In the meantime, please continue to help us keep our community safe by following the health protocols, including staying home when sick and encouraging social distancing, handwashing, and the wearing of face coverings. Please also continue to complete the daily screening form in Genesis when we return after the holiday break, so that we can monitor any symptoms, provide guidance regarding health and safety protocols, and be prepared for any required contact tracing in the future. 

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Very truly yours,

George P. Alexis
Superintendent
