COVID-19 Case Reporting
On Sept. 3, Governor DeWine issued an order which requires schools to report positive cases to the public beginning Sept. 8. This webpage will be updated within 24 hours of receiving notification of a positive case.
How do I report if my child has tested positive?
If your child has received a positive COVID-19 test, please call your building's attendance line/secretary to alert them within 24 hours. Verification of the positive test may be requested. If that is the case, a clinical form or test result must be presented to your child's school.
The numbers to call are:
Alliance High School
Alliance Middle School
Alliance Intermediate School
Alliance Elementary School
Alliance Early Learning School
Parkway Learning & Development Center
How will I know if there is a positive case in my child's class or building?
Within 24 hours of receiving a notice of a positive case, Alliance City Schools is required to report the case to the Alliance Health Department and the families of students in the same class as the student or staff member who has tested positive.
For students in Preschool through Grade 5, a letter will be sent through ParentSquare to the classroom of the staff member or students who tested positive. For students at Alliance Middle School, a letter will be sent out through ParentSquare to the grade of the staff member or student who tested positive. If there is a positive case at Alliance High School, all AHS parents will be notified with a letter through ParentSquare.
The case will also be reflected on the above dashboard within 24 hours in compliance with the governor's order.
If you hear of a case, but have not received a notification through ParentSquare, please know that your child has not been in contact with the person who has tested positive.
The district will not send a notification district-wide or post on social media each time there is a positive case, that information will be housed on this website.
Will I need to quarantine my child if they were in contact with a person who tested positive?
Alliance City Schools will work closely with the Alliance Health Department in their effort to do contact tracing. If your child is deemed a close contact, they will be asked to quarantine for 14 days.
Will schools be shut down if there is a positive case?
No, if there is a positive case, Alliance City Schools will follow the necessary protocols to clean and sanitize the areas where the person who tested positive had been. If there is ever a need to close a building, the decision will be made under the guidance of the Alliance Health Department.
If you have questions at any time, please reach out to your child's principal or the administration building at 330-821-2100.
