2) Positive Case
Families, we have one confirmed positive COVID case in the district. At this time, all individuals who are identified as close contacts have been notified by a representative from the MSD of Martinsville and asked to quarantine. Additionally, parents of any student who was in the same class space as the positive individual and is not a close contact will receive an additional notification email. We are following the Board of Health recommendations for Morgan County and the State of Indiana by isolating the individual who has tested positive and quarantining close contacts for the appropriate amount of time. Please know that we are working hard to ensure the safety of our students and staff during this time.

A gentle reminder to keep students at home if: (1) your student(s) is a close contact of someone who tests positive for Covid-19, (2) your student(s) has been in close contact with somebody who is waiting for test results, (3) your student is waiting for test results, (4) anyone in your immediate household is experiencing potential Covid-19 symptom(s), (5) your student exhibits any Covid-19 related symptom(s).

Covid-19 Symptoms include:

Fever 100.0+
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Nausea or vomiting
Sore throat
Muscle pain or fatigue
New loss of taste or smell

Our monthly MSD School Board meeting will be held on Thursday, November 19 beginning 6:30 PM at Martinsville High School. To review the agenda, please visit our website: msdofmartinsville.org -> click on SCHOOL BOARD from the homepage.


4) Thanksgiving
Families, Thanksgiving Break will be held on Wednesday, November 25 – Friday, November 27. Enjoy the holiday and time with your family.

Families, we are in daily contact with our local health department who are advising us. As the motto at Paragon Elementary is #LEO Love Each Other, our MSD staff is dedicated to our students and in keeping them and each other safe.
