Two Adel-De Soto-Minburn High School students and one ADMHS staff member were identified Thursday as testing positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, according to communications from ADM Superintendent Greg Dufoe.
The school district was notified Oct. 29 that two ADM High School students tested positive for SARS-CoV-2. Zero close contacts were identified as possibly exposed to the virus for one of the students, and four close contacts were identified for the other student, including one person exposed onsite at an ADM school or school function and three people exposed off-site.
One staff member at ADM High School tested positive Oct. 27 for the virus that causes COVID-19. Zero close contacts were exposed onsite, and three people were exposed off-site.
Dufoe said the staff member’s notice was inadvertently omitted from a recent positive-case notice sent to families and staff.
The ADM Community School District had about 1,900 students enrolled in 2019, with about 500 in the high school. The district’s Return to Learn Plan calls for 100% attendance and features many virus-mitigation tactics, such as context-appropriate face coverings for students in grades three through 12.
