COVID-19 Dashboards

This page contains COVID-19 Dashboards which are updated every Monday with data from the previous week.

There are now two separate COVID-19 Dashboards for the district: a Summary Dashboard and a detailed COVID-19 Breakdown Dashboard.

Summary Dashboard Information

Each Monday, the Summary Dashboard below will be updated with data from the previous week. Listed are the key categories being used by administrators to guide the decision-making process.

COVID-19 Breakdown Dashboard

Are Students And/Or Staff Required to Wear Face Masks in Our Buildings?

Since January 4, 2022, the wearing of masks is optional, but strongly recommended, for students and staff in PLSD buildings.

PLSD requires that all students (PK-12) wear a face mask/covering while on the bus.

Testing for COVID-19

If anyone in your family is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and tests, the school requires results from SARS-CoV-2 viral (PCR or antigen) test. If using a home test kit, the test MUST be performed with the supervision of a telehealth professional and the results should be sent to the school nurse.

The school cannot accept an at-home test that was self-administered without a proctor.

Positive or Probable Case Notification Letters

Once the district is informed of a positive or probable COVID-19 case that is confirmed with the health department, the district will send out the following letters:
* A letter of notice is sent to the entire building (both cohorts) stating there is a confirmed case.
* A classroom letter is sent to any person who is in class with the individual.

The district will contact anyone who has been identified as a close contact with the individual with specific instructions on next steps. This step usually includes a phone call and a follow up letter from the district. The local health department will also follow up with these individuals.

Families who are not personally contacted by the district and/or the health department are not required to quarantine according to the tracing guidelines for the case in question.
