Update 22

Parents and Staff,

FISD has been notified that an FHS graduate and a guest of that graduate sitting in the yellow section on June 5, 2020, have both tested positive for COVID-19.

Based on the information that we have gathered, the student was not displaying any symptoms of the virus at the time of graduation and all individuals who came in contact with the graduate at the ceremony have been notified.

It has been determined that the end of the 14-day incubation period for anyone possibly exposed at graduation to the student is June 19, 2020.

Out of an abundance of caution, we advise you to monitor your health, review the CDC Guidelines for symptoms of COVID-19 and contact your primary care physician if you develop symptoms. 

FISD is continuing to monitor this situation and will provide additional information as needed. 

Pursuant to privacy protections afforded by FERPA and HIPAA, especially pertaining to medical information, the identity of the student and family cannot be publicly disclosed.
