New cases of COVID-19 reported; students were not in attendance at buildings

Dear Florida Union Free School District Community,

We were notified that several students have tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). In each of the following cases, the students were not in attendance for in-person instruction and therefore, there were no proximate or direct contacts from the schools. Based on guidance from the Orange County Department of Health, no further action is required by the
District at this time.

Golden Hill Elementary School

  • Late last week, we were notified of two students who tested positive.

S.S. Seward Institute

  • Today we were notified of three students who tested positive.

Thank you for understanding that, due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the names of individuals with COVID-19. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you.

Please remember that we can help stop the spread by following the guidance of the Orange County Department of Health, including hand washing, avoiding gatherings, wearing masks and staying home when ill.

Sincerely,

Jan Jehring
Superintendent of Schools
