We were notified yesterday (Sunday, August 30) by the Jasper County Health Department that one of our Carthage High School students tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Carthage R-9 School District assisted the health department by providing contact logs, rosters, and other pertinent information for contact tracing purposes to use in the event of potential COVID-19 exposure.
Some staff and students were asked to stay home from school today until potential quarantine orders were decided. It has been determined no students or staff will be quarantined beyond today.
The District continues to work closely with health officials to keep the Tiger family safe and informed. As a reminder, if your child is sick; do not send them to school. If you, your student, or a member of your family has COVID-19 symptoms, please contact the Jasper County Health Department or a medical provider.
