Governor Parson Press Conference
Updated Guidance for Close Contacts and Exposures in School Settings

Memo from Brad Blackman, Superintendent of Chaffee R-2 School District
Governor Parson Press  Conference -- Updated Guidance for Close Contacts and Exposures in School Settings (As of 11/12/20)

Chaffee Families,
I wanted to share some information from a press conference held by Missouri Governor, Mike Parson, on Thursday morning (11/12/20). The Governor has announced from the Department of Health and Senior Services and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) modified guidelines for determining close contacts and assessing exposures in school settings. Under the updated guidance, proper mask wearing may now prevent individuals from being identified as close contacts in K-12 schools that have implemented a mask mandate. This means that if both individuals at school -- the person diagnosed with COVID-19 and the person exposed to the positive case -- have masks on and are wearing them correctly, the individual exposed does not need to quarantine.

This is a game changer for the schools as we can now keep in-school exposed students from being quarantined. Students that have out-of-school exposures and have been told to quarantine from local health departments will have to continue to quarantine.

Effective Monday, November 16th, the Chaffee School District will implement a mask mandate for all staff and students PK-12. If you are currently under quarantine from an in-school exposure and are not exhibiting any symptoms, you may return to school.

You can read more about the Governor’s Press Conference by going to the school website where there will be links posted.

Thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding during these trying times.
Brad Blackman, Chaffee R-2 Schools Superintendent
