COVID-19 Update January 12 – Positive Cases Reported

(January 12, 2021)

Dear Chatham Families,

We have been notified of three positive COVID-19 cases affecting Chatham students. There is no need for contact tracing within the school setting as a result of any of these cases.

  • A Chatham High School student has tested positive for the virus. The student was last on campus on December 16. 
  • A Chatham Middle School student has tested positive for the virus. The student was last on campus on December 23.
  • A Chatham High School student has tested positive for the virus. The student was last on campus on January 6. 

While we understand that you may want more details, privacy laws prohibit us from sharing or confirming personally identifiable information about anyone who has tested positive or is presumed positive. 

Please continue to fill out our daily Health Screening Form and monitor your family for potential COVID-19 symptoms. Please contact your school in the event that your child exhibits symptoms, undergoes testing, or tests positive for COVID-19. This allows us to gauge what is happening in our school community and allows us to make an informed decision as to if a switch to or return from fully-remote learning is advisable. Our school is required to report to the state all students and staff who undergo testing or who are confirmed positive. 

Help stop the spread in our community by wearing a mask, staying socially distant, avoiding exposure to people not from your household, washing your hands often, and staying home if someone in your household becomes sick.

Sincerely, 

Sal DeAngelo
Superintendent
