An individual at Mountaineer Middle School has been identified as positive with the COVID virus. Close contacts of the positive COVID person needing to quarantine have been identified and contacted by the School Nurse or the Administrator and sent home. All other families in the affected classroom(s) are being notified. By ensuring that students wear their masks appropriately and consistently in the classrooms we are needing to quarantine fewer and fewer students and staff. Maintaining as much social distancing as possible in your classrooms is also contributing to fewer individuals needing quarantined.
