To the MVK Community:
The purpose of this information release is to inform you that an individual at Mazon-Verona-Kinsman Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19. The person is in isolation and any close contacts have been notified.
The health and safety of MVK students and staff continue to be our highest priority and we continue to follow the guidance of the Illinois State Board of Education and state and local health departments for best practices and procedures to protect everyone’s health.
As always, everyone should monitor their health and stay at home if they develop symptoms. Sick persons should contact their health care provider to determine if testing is needed. Anyone who develops severe symptoms should seek medical care immediately. If your child has had close contact with a known case of COVID-19, keep the child at home and notify your primary healthcare provider, the appropriate MVK School, and the county health department, 815-941-3404.
We are committed to providing your child and our staff with a safe and healthy environment. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation with our COVID-19 prevention policies and procedures as we work to help protect your children, your families, and our staff and their families. For any questions or concerns, please contact us at 815-448-2200.
