A pod of our High School Wrestling Team has been identified as a close contact to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. We assure you that health measures and mitigation protocols provided to us by both Public Health and the Iowa High School Athletic Association have been closely followed. Our adherence to the guidance from both parties is a large reason why we only have to quarantine a portion of our team, and not the entire team.
In alignment with guidance from Pottawattamie Public Health PCPH has recommended that the Pod of wrestlers affected remain home for 14 days since their last contact with the confirmed COVID-19 case.
Return dates to school have been given to Riverside by PCPH, which we have communicated to the students and parents affected. These dates will change if the health status changes for any student.
Administration will be in contact with teachers who are impacted. Students will be accessing their classes via email to you the teachers, and by Google Classroom.
We are working with Pottawattamie Public Health to keep our school district and community safe.
We continue to follow all guidance for PK-12 schools as determined by the Department of Health and Human Services, Iowa Department of Education, and Center for Disease Control (CDC).
We adhere to strict mitigation protocols at school (Face Covering Mandate, Social Distancing and Hand Sanitizing).
We clean and disinfect the facility regularly per Health Department Guidance.
Thank you for understanding. Due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the names of the individuals with COVID-19. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you.
