Greenland will use the following procedures in an effort to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus within our staff and student body. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this effort. Together we can help keep our Pirate family safe, healthy, and ready to learn during this unique time. Due to HIPAA Laws, the District will not release any name(s) of a positive COVID-19 student(s) or staff member(s). The District will continue to follow the ADH and CDC guidelines to provide a safe and sanitized environment daily. We are being proactive in taking precautionary measures to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. We are asking all parents/guardians, of students who will be onsite, and all employees to notify our designated Point of Contact (479-225-6341) immediately when the following occurs: *Someone in the household has tested positive for COVID-19 *Someone in the household has been identified as a Close Contact to a positive case and is required to be quarantined or tested *Students or Staff who are being tested (until results are provided) The District Point of Contact (POC) will notify the Arkansas Department of Health and will follow all state and national directives for quarantine. The Point of Contact will call parents or employees and compile a list of Probable Close Contacts to the positive case. The POC will share this information with the Arkansas Department of Health and the ADH Contact Tracer will then call you. The District Point of Contact will notify Probable Close Contacts to self-quarantine immediately for 14 days from the last date of contact with the positive case. The Arkansas Department of Health will then call you to confirm your status of a “close contact” If you are identified as a Close Contact or have a positive COVID-19 test result, you will be required to provide a release letter from the Arkansas Department of Health before you return to campus. Point of Contact – The District Point of Contact (POC) is a district employee who serves as the liaison between the district and the ADH to contact the School Hotline when notified of a district-related positive case and work with school personnel to initiate the identification of Probable Close Contacts (PCC). Probable Close Contact – District identified individuals that have likely been within 6 feet for 15 cumulative minutes or longer within a 24-hour period to a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, regardless of the use of a face covering. This person(s) will be expected to self-quarantine immediately for 14 days from the last date of contact with the positive case and await their Close Contact status to be confirmed by ADH Contact Tracing. A quick response to identify and quarantine will slow the possible transmission of the virus. Close Contact – An individual confirmed by ADH Contact Tracing who was within 6 feet for 15 cumulative minutes or longer within a 24-hour period a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 during the infectious period, regardless of face covering. The Close Contact will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days from the last date of contact with the infected person. It is highly recommended that all close contacts get tested for COVID-19, but individuals must complete the 14 days of quarantine even when the results are negative. They will be in contact with ADH for the duration of the quarantine period.
