FCS Press Release: Positive COVID-19 Student Cases at FES and SMS

Press Release


Dear Fleming Countians,

This afternoon I was notified of three additional students who tested positive for COVID-19 who attend Flemingsburg Elementary School. The three students are connected to the cases from last week - isolated to a particular classroom. Furthermore, I was also notified of a student at Simons Middle School who also tested positive. The student has not been at school for several days, therefore, no students or staff will need to quarantine. We continue to follow all COVID-19 protocols that were implemented back in the fall. Students who are indoors must continue to wear a face covering, sanitize their hands, and practice social distancing. Furthermore, we continue to clean classrooms, restrooms, and other common areas at least every two hours, if not more.

This is a good reminder that even though COVID-19 cases continue to decrease, we must still be cautious. We encourage everyone to monitor their daily health for any new symptoms, no matter how minor the symptoms may be. If new symptoms develop, please contact Nurse Applegate at Fleming County High School so she can assist you. By working together, we can protect everyone and keep in-person classes in operation. The district continues to monitor COVID-19 data daily not only for Fleming County, but surrounding counties, and in Kentucky.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by calling 606-845-5851 or via email at brian.creasman@fleming.kyschools.us
