COVID-19  Update

September 7, 2021

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

I am writing to inform you of two positive cases of COVID-19 at Lawrence High School with thirty-five students and one staff member needing to quarantine, and ten students involved in a junior/senior high co-curricular activity needing to quarantine due to a positive case at an area school. Additionally, there is one case of COVID-19 at Benton Elementary School, with five students needing to quarantine. 

We are notifying the community in an effort to keep those associated with Benton Elementary School and Lawrence High 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
