Dear Franklin Square Families,

Two members of our Franklin Square UFSD staff self reported to the district with positive lab results for COVID-19. Neither employee became symptomatic until several days after school closed. We have consulted with the Nassau County Department of Health and we were advised that it is unlikely that other staff members or students were directly exposed since our schools have been closed since March 13th. As DOH is responsible for the investigation of confirmed cases, we are unable to provide any additional information at this time; however, out of an abundance of caution, I am reaching out to you so you could be prepared should someone experience symptoms of COVID-19.

As a reminder, if you have any questions regarding your health or the health of your child, please call your physician. We remind you that it is critical to follow new government directives and take the following DOH precautions:
• Stay at home and only go out for essential items.
• As much as possible, stay at least six (6) feet away from others.
• Use good hygiene at home, including frequent handwashing and disinfection of surfaces.
• Monitor yourself for symptoms, especially fever, and contact your healthcare provider if you show signs of illness.

As community spread becomes more prevalent, more and more communities are being impacted and the reporting of positive cases will continue to grow at a rapid rate. Since we have been closed for over ten days, notification regarding these cases may change as we receive direct guidance from the DOH and other authorities. We will continue to provide updated information as often as possible.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or need any support. Be well and take care of yourself and your family. Sincerely, Dr. Jared Bloom Superintendent of Schools
