• POSITIVE CASE UPDATES

    Beginning Monday October 8, 2020 , K-12 schools across Michigan must publicly disclose within 24 hours any positive cases of COVID-19 connected to their facilities, according to an emergency order from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

    The order requires Districts to post a disclosure when "a case of probable or confirmed COVID-19 amongst students, teachers, staff members, coaches, volunteers, or any other person who was present on school property or at a school function under circumstances that may result in the transmission or contraction of COVID-19 during their infectious period."

    In our continued effort to remain transparent, the District has sent out information since the beginning of the year on every positive case when the Berrien County Health Department has determined that a staff member, student, or coach has been in one of our facilities during an infectious period. 

    All positive COVID-19 cases among Lakeshore Public Schools staff and students will continue to be posted on the Updated COVID-19 Info Page. In accordance with the LPS's  Plan, the following actions will take place for each positive case:

    • LPS will work closely with the Berrien County Health Department to conduct contact tracing. Those individuals who are determined to have been in close contact with the COVID-19 positive employee will be personally contacted by someone from the Health Department with additional guidance.
    • The LPS facilities team will conduct additional, deep cleaning of the classroom, office, bus, or other space that was occupied by the COVID-19 positive individual prior to it being reopened for staff and/or students. The cleaning will be performed in accordance with United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) guidelines.
