Dear GRPS Families and Staff,

We are writing to inform you about a new public health order issued by the Kent County Health Department on May 9, 2021 regarding quarantine requirements for COVID-19 close contact students.

The order specifically states that all educational institutions must adhere to the following rules:

• Household close contacts of COVID-19 cases are required to quarantine for at least 10 days after last exposure to a COVID-19 cases.

• All persons in educational settings in close contact with a COVID-19 case involved in an outbreak are required to quarantine for at least 10 days after last exposure to a COVID-19 case. Outbreak is defined as two or more school-associated cases that are linked to each other.

• As soon as possible, persons identified as close contacts in an educational setting should be notified of their potential exposure and given the option to voluntarily quarantine for 10 days.

This means that only students meeting one or both new rules listed above will be required to quarantine. We will continue to notify close contacts so that parents and guardians may monitor their students for symptoms of COVID-19 and/or choose to voluntarily quarantine your student for 10 days. Should a close contact student develop COVID-19 symptoms at any point, please keep your student home and immediately notify the school.

As always, the health and safety of our students, families, and staff is our top priority. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact your student’s school directly. Thank you.


Leadriane Roby, Ph.D. May 10, 2021 Superintendent of Schools
