Re: Covid in Band Staff
Actually, they are allowed to tell you that a student you may or have come into contact with has tested positive without revealing any specifics about the student (name, gender, etc). This is how contract tracing works. With the way our kids are coming and going from school (they are not required to be on campus at all, but can come on any day they choose as long as it is with their group) we wouldn't know was told to stay at home because of positive test if the school just said "a student who was in you room recently has tested positive for COVID-19". That's all that NEEDS to be said. In the past 12 school days I've had kids in my band hall, I've yet to see the same exact group more than once so it would be hard to deduce who tested positive just from "a student who was in you room recently has tested positive for COVID-19". But, we aren't even getting that.
