COVID-19 Information

2021-22 School Year COVID-19 Updates

This page will house pertinent information regarding COVID-19 updates for the 2021-22 school year. Information will be continually evolving, so please refer back to this page for current updates.

To protect the health of our School Community and per the Emergency Order issued by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Reporting of Confirmed and Probable Cases of COVID-19 at Schools, Fruitport Community Schools will use this webpage to provide Public Notice to our School Community regarding School Associated Cases of COVID-19. Within 24 hours of being notified of a School Associated Case by the Muskegon County Health Department, this dashboard will be updated to include new and cumulative COVID-19 case counts. Individuals identified as Close Contacts of School Associated Cases will be notified separately and directly by the Muskegon County Health Department.

SCHOOL ASSOCIATED COVID-19 CASES

In the table below, cases refer to "Confirmed" school-associated cases of COVID-19 for the 2021-2022 school year.  A "Confirmed" case resulted from a positive COVID-19 laboratory test. To see specific information for individual buildings, click the building name.

Updated for the week of 10/24/21

*The number of new cases will be reset every Friday and only cases reported during the following week will be considered "New" cases. The number of cumulative cases will still be reflected in the "Number Cumulative Cases" column.

As a precaution, we will be disinfecting applicable areas of the school. This may include spraying classrooms, hallways, locker rooms, common areas (as needed) with a sanitizer along with other methods of disinfection.

ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE

We recommend taking action to help limit the spread of COVID-19, even if staff members or students are not experiencing symptoms:

  • Wear a mask (covering mouth and nose) while in public places or if people who do not live with you must visit your home.
  • Practice social distancing (maintaining a distance of 6 feet apart).
  • Practice frequent hand washing (using soap for 20 seconds or hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol).
  • Follow capacity restrictions of social gatherings.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or with the inside of your elbow & wash your hands.
  • Stay home if you are sick; you can also get tested.
  • Answer the phone if the health department contacts you, as a contact tracer may be trying to reach you with important information.

This information does not mean you should quarantine or isolate. Those members of the School Community who were or are suspected to have been in Close Contact with a School Associated Case will be notified by the Muskegon County Health Department and/or Fruitport Community Schools.

Thank you for understanding that, due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the names of the individuals with COVID-19. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you.  With your participation, we believe we can maintain a safe environment while also providing quality education.

If you have any questions, contact the Muskegon County Health Department at (231) 724-6246. For answers to your COVID-19 questions, please call the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 Hotline at 888-535-6136 or visit Michigan.gov/Coronavirus.
