As we continue to safely and effectively navigate the 2020-2021 academic year, DLS remains steadfast in our desire to accurately communicate the status of our campus with regards to the ongoing pandemic. In a transparent effort to keep our families prepared, updated, and healthy, we will post our confirmed active cases on this page. These numbers will include DLS students who are attending online, but it will not reflect testing of DLS parents and other family members.

To protect the privacy of the individuals affected, we are not sharing specific case information.

Students who have been determined to have had "close contact" per CDC guidelines are notified by email or phone. 

 

KNOW HOW IT SPREADS

COVID-19 spreads from person to person, mainly by the following routes:
  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within 6 feet).
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, breathes, sings or talks.
  • Respiratory droplets cause infection when they are inhaled or deposited on mucous membranes, such as those that line the inside of the nose and mouth.

 

KEEP YOURSELF SAFE

  • Wash your hands often
  • Avoid prolonged close contact
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
  • Monitor your health daily

 

IF SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY TESTS POSITIVE

  • Consult with your medical provider for appropriate medical advice and get the proper rest they need to stay healthy. 
  • Inform the school office. We will ask you when that family member started showing symptoms and if there are DLS community members with whom that person has had official close contact recently. This information is helpful for contact tracing, documentation where required, and ultimately ensuring the safety of our staff and students. 
  • If the person affected IS NOT a DLS student, please keep your student home and begin the quarantine process.
  • If the person affected IS a DLS student, a student should attempt to keep up with their studies (when healthy enough to do so). Parents, please assist your students as needed with communication to their teachers and school administration.

 

QUARANTINE PROTOCOL

Students who have been asked to quarantine due to close contact may return to campus when they:

  1. have been isolated for 10 days from the infected individual
  2. have received a negative result on a Covid test
  3. are symptom free
