    Public Announcement about a Positive Test

    March 3, 2021

    On March 2, 2021 the Plains School was notified that a school staff member had tested positive for COVID-19.  The positive test was confirmed on March 2, 2021.  The staff member was last in person-to-person contact with Plains Schools students on February 15th, 15 days prior to the staff members’ diagnosis.  

    If any staff or students are at risk of exposure, the Sanders County Health Department will be in contact with that person to determine a safe and appropriate course of action.  It is still recommended that any person who feels sick or ill, seek out their medical provider for specific instructions.  The Plains School District is in constant contact with the Health Department and reviewing the Centers for Disease Control guidance to complete cleaning the school and other related facilities.  School officials will continue to monitor the situation and will provide further information if and when it becomes available.



    In the Event of a confirmed positive case

    A confirmed positive case within the school (staff or student) may initiate a minimum 2 day school shutdown in the 7-12, and a 2 day multi-grade level (K-2, 3-4, or 5-6) shutdown in the elementary for cleaning and collaboration with the county health department.  These plans are subject to change as guidance from the local, state, and federal authorities changes.  We are learning that each case seems to have its' own unique factors and therefore we are constantly adjusting our protocols to meet the safety concerns while still trying to keep the school open.






    The mission of the Plains School District, in partnership with the community, serves to provide each student a diverse education in a safe, supportive, caring environment that promotes self-discipline, motivation, and excellence in learning. The school's organization, curriculum, and co-curricular activities are child centered to assist our leaders of tomorrow in succeeding and contributing responsibly in a global community.
