As we become aware of positive COVID-19 case(s) and affected individual(s), Sault Area Public Schools will notify the school community through this area of the website. The Chippewa County Health Department (CCHD) will conduct contact tracing to determine close contacts. Those identified as close contacts will be contacted directly by the Chippewa County Health Department and receive instructions on what to do next.
In accordance with HIPAA and FERPA laws, health information is private and we will not provide specifics about the cases.
We ask that all students and staff fully cooperate with CCHD which will prevent further spread of the disease in our community. If you are contacted by the CCHD and placed under quarantine or isolation for a COVID-19 infection, please let the district know and present the letter that was given to you by the health department.
