Important Message from the Principal
Hello Willow Canyon Family,

It is important to us to keep you posted on situations that impact the health and safety of our campus. We want you to know that there are currently 2 active COVID cases among the 1,694 students and staff on campus that meet the criteria for school-wide communication according to the Maricopa County Department of Public Health.

Criteria includes that there are two or more lab-confirmed COVID cases among students or staff within a 14-day period that were direct contacts on campus, but not direct contacts of each other in another setting and do not live in the same household. Any students or staff who may have had direct contact have been notified and asked to quarantine, and anyone with indirect contact has been notified and reminded to monitor for symptoms. These cases have been reported to the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH).

We appreciate the partnership of parents and students in wearing face coverings, following health, safety and cleaning protocols, and keeping children home when they are sick.  We are working closely with Maricopa County Department of Public Health to maintain a clean and healthy environment and stop the spread. We have numerous health and safety procedures in place, including daily temperature checks, increased cleaning protocols, and asking families to monitor for symptoms and to stay home when sick. 
 
We have put together some frequently asked questions below. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact me at [email protected], or the Dysart Lead Nurse, Jacqueline Hoeffler at [email protected], for more information. MCDPH also has a dedicated email to receive public health inquiries from parents/guardians of students, if needed: [email protected] and additional information also can be found at Maricopa.gov/Covid19.
 
Thank you for partnering with us to ensure the health and safety of students and our campus.

Adam Schwartz, Principal

What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a virus that had not been previously identified. People with COVID-19 can have a range of symptoms from a mild cold-illness to severe pneumonia. Symptoms of COVID-19 include: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, sore throat, headache, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, muscle/body aches, and/or a new loss of taste or smell.

How is it spread?
COVID-19 spreads most commonly in the same way as the common cold or flu — through respiratory droplets that are produced when someone coughs or sneezes. We do not think that COVID-19 spreads through the air across the room, and it is easily cleaned off of surfaces using routine disinfectants.

Am I at risk?
People who are most at risk are those who have been in close contact (being within 6 feet of a person with COVID-19 for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period OR had physical contact with a person.) with someone who has the infection. Individuals 65 years and older, and those with chronic medical conditions, are at higher risk of complications from the illness.

What do I do next? Can I get tested for COVID-19?
If you’re experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms consistent with COVID-19, believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or think you should be tested for COVID-19, you can work with your healthcare provider to get tested or look for an independent testing site. You can visit www.maricopa.gov/covid19testing or call the Arizona COVID-19 hotline at 844-542-8201 for more information about testing options and availability in your area.
