Dear Henry-Senachwine Families:
Please review the updates below.
COVID-19 Case Updates:
With the intention of keeping you informed regarding COVID-19 cases that emerge in the District, we plan to provide you with updates as positive cases are reported to us.
The administration has been informed that one individual at Henry-Senachwine Grade & Junior School has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual case has not been present at HSGS/JH this week.
As a reminder, when a positive COVID-19 case is reported, the administration works in conjunction with the health department to contact individuals who have been in close contact with a positive COVID-19 case.
Also, a reminder to parents/guardians that if any of your children have symptoms, all the siblings have to stay home until the symptomatic student has a negative COVID test. You can get a rapid COVID test by calling the Marshall County Health Department and scheduling an appointment. The Marshall County Health Department phone number is 309-246-8074.
Symptom Screenings and Temperature Checks:
A reminder to continue to conduct symptom screenings and temperature checks of your students and if your student is sick, please keep them at home. Below is a list of COVID-19 symptoms:
