COVID Cases: How Will I Know?

District notifies staff and families if a person at school is diagnosed with COVID-19

As students return to school buildings in a hybrid model, it must be expected that there will be some cases of COVID-19 among students or staff attending school on-site this spring. 

In any confirmed coronavirus case, the district will work closely with Lane County Public Health officials to respond to the case, assist with contact tracing, determine and notify any persons who may have been exposed to COVID-19, and protect the health of our school staff and community.

Eugene School District 4J and all 4J schools are committed to a high standard of health and safety protocols, which greatly limit the likelihood of transmission between people at school. 

The district and our schools also are committed to proactive and transparent communication to staff and families, and will notify the school community of any COVID cases identified among staff or students who have been attending school on-site. Our goal in sharing this information is to keep staff and families well informed, while meeting confidentiality requirements and honoring everyone’s right to privacy. The affected person will not be identified. 

Anyone identified as having been in close contact with the affected person will be contacted individually, notified of the exposure, and provided information about next steps such as quarantine measures.
