COVID-19  Update

May 5, 2021

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

I am writing to inform you of two positive cases of COVID-19 at Lawrence High School resulting in 12 students and one staff member identified as close contacts needing to quarantine, and one case at Lawrence Junior High School resulting in twenty-two students identified as close contacts needing to quarantine.

We are notifying the community in an effort to keep those associated with Lawrence High School and Lawrence Junior High School informed and to clarify the information we have at this time.  Additionally, the Albion Elementary School childcare program is impacted by a positive case and that staff is notifying families involved.

Unfortunately, we are continuing to experience a rise in cases. Though our schools remain open now in large part due to fully vaccinated individuals able to staff the buildings, we urge all to continue to monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19, call a health care provider if symptoms start, and stay home if you are sick. 

Thank you for your cooperation and continued vigilance.

Stay safe and be well.

Roberta Hersom

Superintendent of Schools
