COVID-19 Case Notifications
In September of 2020, the Ohio Department of Health issued an order requiring K-12 schools to report and notify parents/guardians and local health departments when a student, teacher, staff member or coach tests positive or is diagnosed with COVID-19. That order is still active as we begin the 2021-2022 school year.
Students and school staff who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, whether by laboratory test or through clinical examination, shall notify their school building/department no later than 24 hours after receiving a confirmed diagnosis. At Howland Schools, we are committed to providing accurate data regarding cases of COVID-19 while maintaining the ongoing confidentiality of our students and staff.
