Hello Everyone, Last Friday afternoon we received word that two students tested positive for COVID-19. After contact tracing we identified 11 students who were considered close contacts from either the classroom, lunchroom or the bus. We also have two staff members who tested positive last week which did not result in any close contacts being identified. As we enter this week our numbers look like this: 2 students positive, 2 staff positive, 16 students in quarantine. We are still seeing that people are acquiring COVID from outside of the school buildings. In tracing the origin of these cases we are not seeing spread in the school at this point and this is still due to the many measures we are taking to keep everyone safe. I continue to encourage the Bulldog community to take precautions when you are not at school. Swanton is now entering the 11th week of the 2020-21 school year and we want to keep this going so your continued vigilance is needed. Thank you all for the efforts you have made to keep yourselves and your families safe. Go Bulldogs!
