A Message from Our Superintendent

October 21, 2020

Dear Beaver Creek School Families and Staff,

The Beaver Creek School District considers the health and well-being of our students and staff to be of the utmost importance. It is with that in mind that this letter is being sent home for your information. Yesterday, October 19 we were alerted that an individual on our campus tested positive for Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). The person was last on campus Thursday, October 8. The person is currently isolated and will not return until medically cleared. The school has notified any students or staff who may have been exposed. We completed the cleaning and disinfecting of any exposed locations. 

For now, please continue to observe your child/children over the next few days for any of the common symptoms of the coronavirus, including:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Headaches
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose 
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Rash

Be proactive about reducing the number of interactions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus and practice good hygiene. Important public health prevention messages include: 

  • Stay home when you are sick. Anyone with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should remain at home in isolation for a minimum of ten days plus at least 24 hours after the resolution of fever (without fever-reducing medication) and improvement in other symptoms. 
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers that contain at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, and then dispose of the tissue and clean your hands immediately. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve, not your hands, to cover your coughs and sneezes. 
  • Limit close contact with people who are sick, and avoid sharing food, drinks, or utensils. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes. 
  • All students and staff should wear a mask or face covering.

Individuals exposed must quarantine for 14 days from the last exposure in order to prevent illness in new persons. Quarantine means the student should not go to work, hang out with friends, go to social events, or come into close contact with another person even if they have no symptoms until the 14 day period of isolation has passed. “Close contact” means within six feet of the confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case for more than 15 minutes, even if wearing a non-medical face covering. Please note that all information, including the name of an ill person, is confidential in order to protect privacy. We continue to communicate frequently with the Yavapai County Health Services staff to guide us in contact tracing and mitigation protocols. Our goal is to continue to provide in-person learning at our schools unless the YCHS would feel it is prudent to move a class to distance learning or in the case of a severe outbreak, to close a school temporarily and move to distance learning. At this time, Beaver Creek School District is aware of one case of COVID-19.

Sincerely,

Karin Ward
