COVID-19 Update

October 29, 2020

Dear Families and Staff Members,

Earlier today, October 29, 2020, a member of the Moniteau School community informed the district that they had tested positive for COVID-19. In accordance with the district’s health and safety protocols, we completed a risk assessment in conjunction with the Department of Health's Rapid Response representative. It has been determined that there is no continued risk or known exposures that would require others to quarantine or isolate. We continue to follow the CDC recommended protocols for positive cases in schools which includes thoroughly disinfecting all potentially affected rooms, surfaces, and buses.

In the future, if your child is exposed to COVID-19, Moniteau School District and the Department of Health will contact you. The individual in this case is in satisfactory condition and will remain isolated at home until cleared by a medical professional. Please be aware, if you have not been contacted with specific instructions, you or your student have not been exposed and therefore should continue as scheduled without interruption.

As a reminder, if you or a child in your care test positive for the coronavirus, you must inform your school nurse or school administration as soon as possible and begin isolating immediately.

Please continue to follow all mandated social distancing and personal safety practices, including wearing proper and approved face-coverings, maintaining at least six feet of personal distance from others whenever possible, utilizing proper hand-washing protocols (washing for at least 20 seconds each time), and regularly cleaning and disinfecting frequently-used or shared spaces, items, and surfaces.

We wish a full and speedy recovery to any individuals in our district who experience the coronavirus.


Thomas J. Samosky, M.Ed.
Superintendent, Moniteau School District
