The Duneland School Corporation (DSC) is reminding students and parents to practice good hygiene, on news that at least four Hoosiers have been infected with COVID-19. “Schools are working with students to promote good hygiene,” DSC said in a statement released after deadline on Monday. “We have also intensified sterilization/disinfecting practices in all of our schools and buses. Parents are asked for help in reinforcing healthy practices at home with children.”

“As spring break approaches, we ask all families to be mindful of any imposed travel restrictions,” DSC added. “And as always, if your student is exhibiting any respiratory symptoms (fever, cough, or shortness of breath), please do not send them to school. Seek immediate medical care if symptoms become more severe, e.g., high fever or difficulty breathing.”

“To date, there are four confirmed cases in Indiana,” DSC said. “Outbreaks like this are always troublesome. It is understandable that people are concerned and worried about how this virus may impact our schools and communities. We are proactively working to ensure our schools are safe for all students and staff. DSC will provide updated information as it becomes available via the DSC website.”
