COVID-19  Update

May 10, 2021 

Dear Staff, Students, and Families, 

I am writing to inform you of two positive cases of COVID-19 at Benton Elementary School with nine students identified as close contacts needing to quarantine, one case at Albion Elementary School, with no close contacts needing to quarantine, and two cases at Lawrence High School resulting in eighteen students and two staff members identified as close contacts needing to quarantine.

We are notifying the community in an effort to keep those associated with Benton Elementary School, Lawrence High School and Albion Elementary School informed and to clarify the information we have at this time. 

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
