67 isolated after Pre-Kindergarten student tests positive for COVID-19 in Herscher

HERSCHER – Herscher School Community No. 2 Superintendent Dr. Richard S. Decman alerted parents earlier this week 64 students are in isolation following a COVID-19 positive at the school.

The positive test came from a Pre-Kindergarten student at Herscher Intermediate School.

“The last time the COVID-19 positive individual was in the school setting while they were contagious was Friday, October 2nd.” Decman said in a letter to parents earlier this week.

So far this school year Herscher School Community No. 2 has reported 1 confirmed case among faculty members with 10 confirmed cases among the student body.  There are now 67 in isolation in the District,  including three faculty members.

“Please remember to keep your student home if they are ill for any reason. If you have any questions, please contact your building Principal. Thank you for your understanding and ongoing cooperation with our COVID-19 prevention policies and procedures as we work together to keep our students, staff and families safe and healthy.” Decman says.
