Subject: COVID-19 Point of Contact

Dear Employees, Parents, and Guardians,

In an effort to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus within our staff and student body we are asking all parents/guardians of students who will be in attendance on-site, and all employees to notify our designated Point of Contact (POC) immediately when the following occurs:

· Someone, including the student or employee, in the household has tested positive for COVID-19.

· Someone, including the student or employee, in the household has been identified as a Close Contact to a positive case of COVID-19 and is requiring quarantine and/or recommended to be tested for COVID-19.

· A Student attending on-site or employees are being tested for COVID-19. If symptomatic, student/staff should remain in quarantine pending results of their COVID-19 test. Please call Bill Muse at 870-450-4942, or email information to If he is unavailable, or does not have signal, please leave a message and he or a designee will return your call to gather the information as soon as possible.

It is important to note that this information must come directly and not second-handed. Also, no information will be given out regarding potentially active cases in the district via the POC.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Together we can help keep our Marmaduke School District family safe, healthy, and ready to learn during this unique time.
