September 17, 2020
Dear Henry-Senachwine Families:
Please review the informational updates below.
COVID-19 Case Updates:
With the intention of keeping you informed regarding COVID-19 cases that emerge in the District, we plan to provide you with updates as positive cases are reported to us.
The administration has been informed that an individual within the Henry-Senachwine School District has tested positive for COVID-19. As a reminder, when a positive COVID-19 case is reported, the administration works in conjunction with the health department to contact individuals who have been in close contact with a positive COVID-19 case.
Please note, individuals who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate for 10-days and individuals who have been identified as a “close contact” to a positive or probable COVID-19 case are required to quarantine for 14 days.
We will continue to work with the health department and keep you updated and informed, as the health and safety of our students and staff remain our priority. Below you will find links to the latest Illinois Department of Public Health Guidance.
