COVID-19 Dashboard

The South-Western City School District is making available a community report of the newly-reported COVID-19 confirmed positive cases, newly-reported COVID-19 close contact exposures, and newly-reported exclusions from schools each week. This data will be updated weekly.

Parents/guardians should notify their child's school through the school attendance line within 24 hours of receiving positive test results or a clinical diagnosis of COVID-19. If a student has been deemed as a 'close contact' of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and is required to be isolated/quarantined, this information should also be reported to the school through the school attendance line.
