Guidance for Families and Staff
Human coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that commonly cause mild to moderate illness like the common cold. Almost everyone gets infected with one of these viruses at some point in their lives, and most of the time, the illness lasts for a short amount of time.
A new human coronavirus, called the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), was discovered in Wuhan City, China, in December 2019. COVID–19 is contagious, but officials have not determined how easily it spreads from person to person. Public health officials are actively investigating this virus.
People with confirmed cases of this coronavirus report illnesses ranging from mild to severe. Symptoms are similar to the flu and can include the following:
• Shortness of breath
• Body aches
• Sore throat
No vaccine currently exists to prevent COVID–19 infection. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Here are some ways you can keep your family healthy and help prevent the spread of viruses.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue into the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in your home.
• Ensure that your child’s school has current parent contact information
Contact your school nurse or school administrator for further information.
Hello MSL Families,
We are please to share with you the 2018-2019 State Report Card for MSL. We are excited to report that our school “Meets Expectations” as part of the state’s accountability system. The report card includes data in multiple indicators for multiple years across four Priority Areas: Student Achievement, Growth, Closing Gaps, and On-Track and Post-secondary success. The report card also measures chronic absenteeism and dropout rates.
