The management of 2019 Novel Coronavirus is, as expected, evolving with time and research. There is a global response to contain this virus and we will receive specific guidance from public health organizations. If there is any information that relates to Olathe Public Schools, staff and parents will be informed.
It is important to remember that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention currently rates the U.S. and the state of Kansas at Low Risk for coronavirus. Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE) are actively monitoring this situation and communicate guidance to school districts. Olathe Public Schools collaborates with JCDHE in measures necessary to contain communicable diseases, including 2019 Novel Coronavirus.
The district is collaborating with public health officials around this issue to ensure that current practices are appropriate.
