RE: COVID-19 Case Identification

DATE: May 5, 2021
TO: Geer Park School Community
FROM: Mr. Lawera, Principal
RE: COVID-19 Case Identification


A confirmed case of coronavirus (Covid-19) has been identified at school. The date of exposure was
Monday, 5/3/21. We are working closely with Wayne County Health Department to identify exposures and
prevent further cases. This letter is informational only; no further action is required for you at this
time. No close contacts were identified.
I want to thank all staff and students for following through social distancing measures and adhering to all
other guidelines, like wearing masks at all times and not being in close contact with anyone for 15 minutes
or more. I want to also remind all staff and students that we need to respect everyone’s privacy at all times.
Your safety and privacy are important to us. Again, we thank all of you for adhering to all guidelines.
The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, through respiratory
droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the
mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely
when people are less than six feet from each other for at least 15 minutes. A person who is a close contact
of someone who is infected with COVID-19 may experience COVID-19 symptoms typically within two to
fourteen days after a person is exposed.
The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar in children and adults. Symptoms can include: Fever
(>100.4oF), cough, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, runny or stuffy nose, loss of taste
or smell, abdominal pain.
There are many things that can be done to keep our schools, homes, and communities “COVID-19 free”
and protect ourselves and loved ones:

  1. Children and adults should stay home when ill.
  2. Washing hands often with soap and running warm water for at least 20 seconds.
  3. If a hand washing station is not available, use hand sanitizer properly. Gels, rubs, and hand
    wipes must contain at least 60% alcohol. Dispose of wipes in the trash after use.
  4. Practice Good Respiratory Etiquette (cover a cough with elbow versus hand).
  5. Follow guidance for wearing a face covering and social distancing.
    If you have questions, please contact Wayne County Health Department at 734-727-7078.
    Following the guidance of the MI Safe Schools Roadmap, the school has been disinfected. This
    includes spraying classrooms, hallways, locker rooms, and common areas as needed with a sanitizer,
    along with other methods of disinfection.
    Additional information can be found on the CDC website.

DEARBORN,Mich. –  No appointment is needed to get the Covid-19 vaccine at Dearborn’s vaccination center today through Thursday, April 22. 

Tell your neighbors, coworkers and family members how easy it is for people 18 and older who live in Wayne County to get the shot—and how quick. Most people are out within 25 minutes.

Appointments are still preferred and are the most efficient way to get a shot. Make one at www.cityofdearborn.org/covid

The vaccines are the two-dose Moderna shots. Moderna is approved for those 18 and over.

            Masks covering your mouth and nose are required to enter and remain in the building. People will be screened at the door as part of the health protocol.

The Consolidated Vaccination Center is supported by Wayne County.

Also, high schools will be taking part in State testing next week. Information has been shared with students but please check with your child’s school for details or if there are any questions. 

For students 16 and older, there are still appointments available on April 16th at DMC to get your COVID-19 vaccination. This is a special partnership between the District and DMC.

مرحباً،

مجرد تذكير سريع بأن جميع مدارس ديربورن العامة ستعود إلى اتباع برنامج التعليم المدمج بدءً من يوم الاثنين ، 12 نيسان \ أبريل 2021. وهو الجدول الذي تم اتباعه قبل عطلة الربيع.

كما نذكركم أيضاً بأن امتحانات الولاية الأساسية للمرحلة الثانوية سوف تبدأ في الأسبوع المقبل. تمت مشاركة هذه المعلومات مع الطلاب ومع ذلك يرجى مراجعة مدرسة الطالب للحصول على المزيد من التفاصيل أو إذا كانت لديكم أية أسئلة.

إضافة إلى ذلك ما زال لدى الطلاب من سن 16 فما فوق (وأولياء أمورهم) ، الفرصة لتحديد موعد لأخذ لقاح كورونا يوم الجمعة 16 نيسان \ أبريل في مركز ديترويت الطبي. يتم هذا الحدث بالشراكة بين قطاع ديربورن التعليمي و مركز ديترويت الصحي ( DMC). لمزيد من المعلومات حول كيفية التسجيل ، يرجى الضغط على الرابط التالي:

https://firstbell.dearbornschools.org/2021/03/31/district-dmc-offering-covid-vaccines-to-older-students-and-their-parents/

الرجاء الانتباه إلى ضرورة الاستمرار في ارتداء الكمامات الواقية والحفاظ على مسافة التباعد الاجتماعي وغسل اليدين وتجنب التجمعات الكبيرة. يمنحنا اللقاح الأمل في أن تنتهي معركتنا ضد كوفيد- 19 ، لكن ما زال أمامنا طريق طويل لنقطعه لتحقيق ذلك. بالعمل معا يمكننا القيام بذلك!

شكراً لكم
