Dear JCSD Families:
The purpose of this letter is to provide information to our families from the JCSD administration. On the afternoon of Thursday, October 15, 2020, Juniata County School District learned that a Tuscarora Junior High School student has tested positive for COVlD-19. The student was last in school on October 13, 2020.
As a result of this positive test, contact tracing following the PA Department of Health (DOH) Guidelines is being conducted. JCSD has been in contact with DOH to begin monitoring this situation and will continue to provide guidance.
As of October 15, 2020, there is only one active, positive student COVID-19 case in the district with one previous positive. Also, there are no JCSD employees that have tested positive for COVID-19 to date for this school year.
If you have a student that is being evaluated and tested for COVID-19 infection, please notify the school nurse and keep that student at home while awaiting test results.
