COVID-19 Update - Ben Franklin Elementary

April 1, 2021

Dear Families:  

The District was notified that a student-teacher at Ben Franklin Elementary has tested positive for COVID-19.  There are no additional students or staff needing to be quarantined as a result of this case.  This positive case WILL be counted towards the rolling 14-day count.   As a result, we will continue to stay open under the current model.   See below for the current case numbers at each building as of this morning. 


  • Senior High - 1 active cases 
  • Junior High - 0 active case
  • Eisenhower - 0 active cases
  • Horace Mann - 0 active cases
  • Ben Franklin - 2 active cases
  • East Pike - 0 active cases

As a reminder, the 14-day clock starts at the onset of symptoms, not when the District is informed of the test results.  


As always, the number of confirmed cases can change at any time.  We understand the terrible inconvenience a closure causes our families; however, we have a responsibility to make you aware of the possibility.  My goal is not to cause panic, rather it is to help make you aware of the current situation in case the District needs to make a change rather quickly.  


Respectfully,

 

 

Mr. Michael J. Vuckovich

IASD Superintendent
