Creswell SD Community Notification: COVID-19

Date: April 29, 2021

Dear CSD Staff and Families,

This afternoon, we were notified that a student at Creswell Middle School has been diagnosed with COVID-19. As members of the school community, we understand that this might raise concerns alongside a caring response. We are working closely with Lane County Health Department to respond to this news and protect the health of our community.

Each situation calls for different protocols. In this case, we will follow the following steps:

  • I am communicating closely with LCPH.
  • Close contact tracing has been conducted.
  • Nurse Melissa has been notified and is in communication with LCPH.
  • All CMS staff and students in close contact with the student have been notified.
  • A letter has been posted on our website.
  • Any additional students/families that need to be notified will be contacted by LCPH.

The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is through staying home when ill, wearing face coverings, physical distancing, and practicing good health hygiene habits. Be sure to wash your hands frequently with soap and water, cover your coughs and sneezes, and avoid contact with people who have signs of illness. Get plenty of rest, exercise, and eat a healthy diet. Protect the community by following the Governor’s safety requirements. Wearing cloth face coverings reduces the spread of virus. Social distancing at least 6’ is recommended by OHA.

We will keep you updated with any new information as it comes out, while meeting the requirements to honor everyone’s right to privacy.

More information can be found on the Oregon Department of Education’s Ready Schools, Safe Learners pagethe Oregon Health Authority’s COVID-19 page and Creswell SD Ready Schools, Safe Schools. If you have any questions, please contact Nurse Melissa at
