Dear Clarke Elementary families,

Clarke Community Schools learned that an elementary staff
member has tested positive for COVID-19. This is the first positive case that
we know of in our district.
While we must protect the privacy of all Clarke community members and
cannot share further details about this individual, we ask that you join us in
wishing them a swift and full recovery. We will remain in contact with them to
provide our support and ensure they are not contagious before returning to
work. We have also reached out to any employees who have had close
contact with the individual  to provide guidance and
support. The area of the building will be thoroughly cleaned.
We appreciate your partnership as we fulfill our duty to limit the spread of
COVID-19, as Clarke community members and global citizens. Please
continue to practice the recommended preventative steps to remain healthy.​
Steve L. Seid, Superintendent
Jody Kerchal, Principal
Becca Kedley, Associate Principal
