Dear Staff, Students and Families,
We understand positive cases of COVID-19 are on the rise in Ohio and in our community. The Trumbull County Combined Health District is working diligently and processing positive cases in the order in which they are received, and our administrative team is working hard to initiate contact tracing when cases are reported to us from families and staff members.
As we move forward, we will be placing all district wide notifications of positive student and staff COVID cases on our COVID-19 Dashboard, which can be found on the main page of our website. We will no longer be sending home district wide notification letters. Instead, we encourage you to review our COVID-19 dashboard frequently, as all of our districtwide notifications and updates will be reflected there.
To maintain compliance with the Ohio Department of Health’s order regarding notification, we will continue to send letters to students who’ve shared a classroom, common space or school bus with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, as well as send letters to students who’ve participated in an activity with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19.
We want to remind students and parents/guardians who are presumed positive, whether by laboratory test or through clinical examination, to notify your building principal no more than 24 hours after receiving a confirmed diagnosis so that we can begin our internal processes and protocols.
Andy Tommelleo, Ed.D
Liberty Local Schools Interim Superintendent
