We are closely monitoring the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. LCSD# 1 is collaborating with local and state health departments as needed. We will follow instructions from the local and state health departments if necessary.
Board meeting action as of 09/08/21
As a courtesy to public health, Lincoln County School District #1 is calling to inform you that your student was in close contact with a confirmed COVID positive case. School district practice recommends you follow the guidance of your health care professional and Wyoming Department of Public Health. This guidance is available on our website. As a school district, we respect the autonomy of individuals and recognize we do not have the legal authority to enforce quarantine on an individual not displaying symptoms and recognize there is no current mandate in Wyoming nor are any recommendations by public health being enforced. Out of courtesy for others if you send your student to school after a close contact we do require they wear a mask for 10 days after exposure or vaccinated individuals may test after 3 to 5 days and stop wearing a mask and non-vaccinated close contacts may test negative after 5 days and stop wearing a mask on day 8. If your child does develop symptoms after exposure please do not send them to school; they will be sent home.
