COVID-19 Report Card
COVID-19 Report Card
Kennewick School District is posting data on all reported positive cases of COVID-19 in school district buildings since the start of the school year. We encourage anyone who tests positive, and has been onsite at a district facility, to let a district administrator or school nurse know so any necessary contact tracing happens and necessary notifications are sent.
Identifying Close Contacts
When the school learns about a positive case, the school COVID-19 coordinator and nurse work to identify and notify any close contacts in the building. If an individual is a close contact, the parent/guardian or individual will be contacted with further instructions. If they are not contacted, there is nothing further they need to do.
Close contact is defined as within 6 feet for a cumulative total of 15 or more minutes over a 24-hour period with anyone with confirmed COVID-19 during the infectious period.
When the school district receives a report of a postiive case of COVID-19 in one of its buildings, the school district will post the report to this page. If the individual who tested positive was physically present in a district building within the past 14 days of when the case was reported to the district, email notifications will be sent to building staff and families who have students attending in-person classes at that location.
If it may be necessary to temporarily close a classroom or school for cleaning and sanitizing. If this occurs, families and staff will be notified and further information will be provided about how classes will be conducted during that time.
One of the best ways to decrease the spread of COVID-19 is to get tested. Getting tested does NOT increase the amount of disease in our community. Adequate testing allows for early identification of cases, quick isolation and decreases transmission rates. For the latest information about testing sites and available free testing, check the Benton-Franklin Health District website.
