Three individuals at Lowrie Primary School have been diagnosed with COVID-19 as of Nov. 25.
In a message to Lowrie families, Principal Sarita Amaya said that by consulting the contact tracing logs used to keep tabs on who is in the building and when, Clackamas County Public Health officials and the school nurse, Tess Jenkins, were able to notify all individuals who were potentially exposed to people who tested positive.
"As members of our school community, we understand that this raises responses of concern and care. We are working closely with Clackamas County Public Health to respond to this news," she said in the letter.
The district was unable to disclose identifying information pertaining to the outbreak.
In the letter to families, Amaya said the entire building was cleaned Nov. 25, after the district received word of the positive cases.
She reminded the community that the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to practice good hygiene, wash your hands, keep a distance and wear a mask.
