Someone at Sunnyside Environmental School has tested positive for COVID-19 and was onsite during their infectious period, 10/5/2021 - 10/15/2021.

We are sending this letter to all families and staff in the school community. If you or your student has been exposed and needs to stay at home (quarantine), a separate letter will be sent to you. If you do NOT receive a separate letter, you or your student can continue coming to school.

The School District does the following things when we find out about a person testing positive for COVID-19:
• Double check the positive test result with the Multnomah County Health Department.
• Send a separate letter to all exposed students and staff and ask them to stay home for 10 days to watch for symptoms.
• Keep the names of students and staff who have COVID-19 private. Please respect the privacy of anyone who has COVID-19.
The best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are to:
• Get vaccinated
• Wear a well-fitting mask
• Stay home when sick
• Stay away from people who are sick
• Maintain distance from people outside of your home
• Cover your coughs and sneezes, and wash your hands with soap and water often

Call the school if you or your student is sick or if someone in your home tests positive for COVID-19. Make sure the school has your correct phone number.

If you have health questions, call your school nurse, your healthcare provider, your local health department, or look at the CDC website.
Sincerely,
Eryn Berg, Principal
Hassan Dornayi Area Senior Director and

• Outside the office when entering the building (accessible to students only).
Please do not hand test kits to teachers or take them into classrooms. 𝗧𝗲𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗯𝗲 𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗸𝗶𝘁𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝗮𝗻𝘆 𝘄𝗮𝘆.
IMPORTANT NOTE: SES's collection day is every Monday morning, and only Monday mornings. If your student turns in a completed kit on any other day, it will not be tested; your student should wait until the following Monday to submit a completed test kit. If your student is out on a Monday and cannot return their kit, wait until the following week to complete and return the kit.
