A Detroit elementary faculty member with Detroit ISD has tested positive for COVID-19.
According to an announcement made by Detroit Elementary Principal Henry Sharp, the faculty member did not contract the virus at the school and consistently wore a face mask.
“I have personally talked with each parent involved and they are being very supportive and their children are showing no symptoms,” Sharp said. “I would also like to thank the community for working so well with us in these unprecedented times. The faculty member is recovering and is thankful for all of the well-wishes they have received.”
The faculty member has been quarantined and all students in the class, even though no student has tested COVID-19 positive on the elementary campus. He said the district is quarantining the students as a precaution.
The district will continue to sanitize the building each day, follow mask protocols, and check the temperatures of each student and adult entering the building.
“Our priority is to provide a safe and quality education for all of our students,” Sharp said. “With the support of our community and the dedication of our staff, I feel we are being very successful in accomplishing this goal.”
