3-25-21 Notification of Positive COVID-19 Cases at Seneca High School
Dear Students, Staff, Parents/Guardians:
This letter is to inform you that three individuals at Seneca High School have tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The District is coordinating closely with the Burlington County Health Department (BCHD) and following CDC and State guidelines in order to ensure the health and safety of our community.
Per the guidelines of the BCHD, Seneca may remain open. Contact tracing has been completed and all three cases appear to be epidemiologically linked to a gathering outside of Seneca. If you were identified as a close contact (within 6 feet for 15 cumulative minutes or more over 24 hours), you received additional notifications in the form of a phone call and a letter. If you did not receive additional notifications, no further action is required.
We appreciate our community’s support and cooperation. Any student or staff member who is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (COVID-19 Screening Tool) or being tested should notify the school nurse and remain home from school and all extra-curricular activities. Should you have any questions about this situation, please feel free to call me directly at 609-268-4600, extension 669000 or our school nurse, Melinda Mehigan at 609-268-4600, extension 663700.
Bradley H. Bauer
