Positive COVID-19 test

Good Day Hilltoppers,

This release is to inform you that another Mount Pulaski CUSD 23 employee has tested positive for COVID-19.  This employee has also come in contact with other employees through district work.  The school district has contacted the Logan County Health Department as well as Regional Office of Education #17 to inform them of this positive test.  The employee has self-quarantined.  All parties who have come into contact with the employee through school activities have been notified and informed that they are restricted from all district activities for a period of 14 days from the time of initial contact.

Mt. Pulaski CUSD 23 has developed practices, which include monitoring health symptoms and creating systems to manage such a situation that a student or staff member contracts COVID-19 during the school year.

The school district encourages all community members to maintain safe social distances, wear masks in public when social distancing and wash your hands. These efforts will help us combat this virus so that our students and staff may safely return to school.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Superintendent Fred Lamkey at the district office.  He may be reached through email, flamkey@mtpulaski.k12.il.us or by phone at 217-792-7222.

Thank you and be safe!

Fred Lamkey, Mt. Pulaski Superintendent
