The health and safety of our students, staff and their families are of utmost importance. With the current state of COVID-19 within our community, we want to be transparent with the numbers of positive cases, as well as those currently quarantining from District exposure.
I know that families are carefully considering their options for their student’s learning for the next term, and this information plays a key role in that decision.
On our website you’ll now find these numbers from the past two week’s data. Click here to access this information. These will be updated every Monday morning with the most recent data from the previous period.
Please remember that if there is a positive COVID-19 case within your student’s school building, the Scott County Health Department will contact families of students who are considered to be in close contact of the person with a positive COVID-19 test. The Davenport Community School District will not contact you.
It is imperative that you then follow the instructions provided by the Scott County Health Department. If your family is not contacted by the health department, your student(s) was not found to be in close contact of the positive case and no further action is required.
