ACSD COVID-19 Reporting Dashboard
ACSD is committed to keeping the community informed as students and staff head back to school for the 2020-21 school year. We recognize that communication is vital during this uncertain time and are committed to providing our community with accurate and up-to-date information, while also adhering to laws that prohibit the release of confidential information and protect the privacy of our students and staff.
ACSD schools are prepared to act immediately and consistently when a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19 or exhibits symptoms consistent with COVID-19. When someone tests positive for COVID-19, ACSD leaders collaborate with the Vermont Department of Health (VDOH) to identify any close contacts of the individual. Contact tracers then call the close contacts and give them guidance to stay home and away from others for a certain amount of time. It is important to answer any call from the school and the Health Department.
For information on what it means to be a close contact, see the VDOH website here and this guidance document: What to do if you are a close contact of someone who is diagnosed with COVID-19 (Spanish, Chinese). For more information on the procedures we will follow for symptomatic students or staff and those who test positive for COVID-19, please see the ACSD COVID-19 Action Guide.

Today we were notified a member of our MUHS community tested positive for COVID-19. Our administrators, nurse/district COVID Coordinator and other members of our COVID team met to plan our response. At the direction of the Vermont Department of Health (VDOH), we began contact tracing immediately. We have now completed communicating with all known close contacts. Again, you would have heard from us directly if you or your student were a close contact of the COVID-positive person. The individual affected will be working with our team and the VDOH to determine when they can return to school. We remain in contact with the VDOH and will take the steps necessary to protect the health of our students and staff. For information on COVID-19 positive case process, please reference our ACSD COVID-19 Action Guide.
I am writing to inform you a member of our school community has tested positive for Covid-19 (this is in addition to the case I reported earlier today). We are working closely with our ACSD Covid-19 coordinator, administrators, and consulted with the Vermont Department of Health to affirm and support our response. I am pleased to share that the individual was not present in school while contagious so there were no close contacts.
