Dear Parents, Community, and Students,
An individual(s) at Joppa High School has tested positive for COVID-19. We are coordinating our efforts with So. Seven Health Dept. to promptly identify and monitor individuals who have had recent contact with the COVID-19 positive individual(s) to prevent further spread within our school and community. The health and safety of Joppa-Maple Grove USD #38 students and staff is our highest priority. We are following guidance from the CDC as well as the state and local health departments for best practices and procedures to protect everyone’s health.

To prevent further spread of the disease, Joppa-Maple Grove USD #38 is taking the following steps:
• Close contacts will receive a separate notification from the Southern Seven Local Health Department.
• Conducting a deep clean and disinfection of the areas impacted by potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus.

We are committed to providing your child and our staff a safe and healthy environment. Thank you for your understanding and ongoing cooperation with our COVID prevention policies and procedures as we work to help protect your children, your families, and our staff and their families.

Sincerely,
Dr. Vickie Artman
Superintendent
