INITIAL REPORT

Springboro Schools was notified of a confirmed case of COVID-19 and has notified families of students who have been on school, buses, in classrooms, groups or on a team.

“If you have not received a separate “Notification of Exposure” letter from the district, your student was NOT EXPOSED [sic],” according to the note sent out Thursday evening from Warren County Health Commissioner Duane Stansbury, Superintendent Larry Hook and District Nurse Bronwyn Patterson.

Sept. 8 through Sept. 11 is phase-in week in the district.

The school system, in coordination with the Warren County Health District, is working to provide a low-risk environment for students and staff, the notification said.

According to the CDC, a single case of COVID-19 will not likely warrant closing the entire school, Stansbury, Hook and Patterson said in the notification.
