Per the guidelines of the Health Department, Shawnee will remain open this week. Please be advised that another unlinked, positive COVID-19 case by December 16 may result in a temporary closure. As of this date, there is no evidence of a COVID-19 spread from within the high school building and contact tracing is underway. If you are identified as a close contact (within 6 feet for 15 cumulative minutes or more over 24 hours), you will receive additional notifications in the form of a phone call and a letter. If you do not receive additional notification, no further action is required.
This is Shawnee’s 10th COVID-19 case since Nov. 28.
Principal Matthew Campbell appreciates the community’s support and cooperation. Any student or staff member who is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (COVID-19 Screening Tool) or being tested should notify the school nurse and remain home from school and all extra-curricular activities.
