Talking to kids about coronavirus?

 

March 12, 2020

Although there are no reported cases of Coronavirus in White Pine County, the White Pine County School District shares our community’s concerns about a possible outbreak in the future. We are cooperating with local health officials, the State of Nevada, and federal health officials to determine the best course of action to protect our students and staff members and ensure the educational needs of our students are met.

We are relying on health experts to provide us with guidance going forward, and depending upon the direction we receive, we will adapt our approach as necessary.

We can assure you that we are taking all necessary steps to gather information, following guidelines set forth by health officials, and that we will convey this information to our families and our community through the media, online, and through direct communication with our families. For further information, please visit www.whitepine.k12.nv.us.

In the meantime, we encourage our families to keep students home when they are sick, encourage children to wash their hands frequently with soap and warm water, and cover their coughs and sneezes.

Our custodial staff is working around the clock to ensure that approved cleansing agents are applied generously to all surfaces.

We know that each of our schools has individual and unique needs, and those needs will be considered as we make plans for the education of our students in the event of an outbreak.

The safety and security of our students and staff is our highest priority, and we are dedicated to doing everything possible to protect them.
