AURORA – Still Middle School closed on Monday morning, after learning that an individual who had been in the school had tested positive for COVID-19. The school will undergo extensive cleaning.
A statement from the school says, “Through contact tracing, a health services staff member will notify individuals who need to quarantine as a precaution. A precautionary quarantine does not mean that an employee or student is sick or will become sick, but is a Department of Public Health practice to best ensure the safety of those around them and decrease the transmission of COVID-19.”
Still Middle School was in the midst of material pick-up by students and will reschedule when the school reopens. Information on resuming school activities, including material pickup, will be shared as soon as it is available.
It’s the second Indian Prairie School District school to have closed in the past five days and the fifth since August 8. Metea Valley High School Clow Elementary, Neuqua Valley High School and Prairie Children Preschool were also shut down earlier this month.
