Dear ACSD Community, 

Today we learned that two members of our Shoreham school community tested positive for COVID-19. We know that any case of COVID-19 within our community is a concern for the entire community and I hope you will join me in keeping those affected in your thoughts. 

Since these are our first cases of COVID-19 in the 2021-2022 school year, I wanted to take this opportunity to share our COVID-19 protocols with all families: 

  1. If there is an active COVID-19 case, principals will communicate directly to the school community affected. 

  2. If staff or students are considered close contacts, they would have received prior direct notification from a school nurse or principal. 

  3. We will update our COVID-19 Dashboard as soon as possible, after those direct communications have taken place. That direct link is: 

This protocol was designed to best meet the needs of all families to be informed while protecting student privacy. When we began reporting COVID-19 cases last year, we emailed the entire ACSD community. For many, this was overwhelming and we decided to send email communications only to the affected school. However, we work to update the COVID-19 dashboard as soon as possible, so that every member of our community can always check the current status of cases. 

Thank you for your hard work keeping yourselves and each other safe.

With Gratitude,

Peter Burrows
ACSD Superintendent
