La Grande School District (LGSD) takes the health and safety of our community very seriously.
We have been receiving questions and concerns from our community about news of the novel coronavirus (respiratory
illness) called COVID-19. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that usually cause mild respiratory illnesses such as the common cold. COVID-19 is a new coronavirus that had not been seen in humans before.

LGSD is closely monitoring these situations and is in frequent contact with public health authorities. To be clear: All
confirmed cases will be handled seriously by the local public health department. They will complete a contact
investigation. If our students, or any students that attended an event, were exposed to a confirmed or presumptive case their families would be contacted directly or the school would be contacted to notify us of the exposure.
