Message from Ms. Paula


We are notifying all parents and guardians that a staff or student who was physically at Mark Twain Elementary has tested positive for COVID-19. Public Health staff are working to learn who was around the person who has tested positive while they were infectious. If your child is determined to be a contact with that person, you will receive a phone call from Public Health with further instructions. Please answer your phone if you receive a call. If you do not receive a call, then your child is not a close contact. Please continue to practice physical distancing, wear a face covering, wash your hands, and monitor your household for COVID-19 symptoms. If your child is sick, keep them at home. Do not send your child to school sick. Contact your medical provider if you or any of your household members develop COVID-19 symptoms. You and other members of your household are encouraged to get tested for COVID-19. More information on COVID-19 can be found on the Calaveras County COVID-19 website: Since this positive test case has happened with limited students on campus prior to our re-opening, the re-opening of school will continue on October 19, 2020 as planned. If something changes, I will send out notification on an auto-dialer and on our Mark Twain Union Elementary School District Facebook page, as well as our website. Thank you, Ms. Paula
