11/18/2020 Letter to Parents on COVID-19 Case

Good Afternoon,

This is a message from Dr. Rabey from Depew Schools,

Earlier today, the District received information from the Erie County Department of Health of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the District.  The individual who tested positive was in the Depew High School.  Please be aware that the District cannot release the name or any other personally identifiable information regarding this individual.

You will be directly contacted by a local public health department representative in the event that you and/or your child had, or may have had, close contact with the individual who tested positive.  You and your child are expected to comply with all instructions given if contacted by the health department, including any requirement to quarantine for a designated period of time.  The District will work collaboratively with the public health representative through the contact tracing process to identify and inform anyone who has had close contact with the individual who tested positive.

For more information, please visit the District’s Website at www.depewschools.org. Thank you.
