COVID-19 Data in Lindbergh Schools
The Lindbergh Schools administrative team monitors St. Louis County data, including the number of new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 individuals, transmission rate, and positivity rate, on a daily basis. In addition, we are consulting frequently with medical professionals and St. Louis County Department of Public Health leadership. We will continue to monitor local data and adjust our phases as often as necessary as we seek to make decisions in the best interest of our students, staff and community.
The dashboard below is designed to share a snapshot of COVID-19 statistics in our district. These numbers reflect a moment in time, not a weekly total or specific data range. For reference, our district has more than 850 employees and 7,600 students.
If a student or staff member in a school building tests positive for COVID-19, Lindbergh Schools administration will work directly with the St. Louis County Department of Public Health to begin the contact tracing process and communicate directly with anyone who had direct contact with the individual who tested positive.
Lindbergh Schools has compiled guidance from the Harvard Global Health Institute, Kansas State Department of Education, EducationPlus and Show Me Strong Recovery Plan to develop a decision-making matrix for returning students to school. This gating criteria and strategy for pandemic resilient teaching and learning will guide our decisions as we navigate our three-phase Green Light plan.
Graph Explanation: The blue and yellow lines represent all reported cases for students and staff, respectively. This includes both in-person and virtual instruction. The red and green lines represent students and staff under quarantine, respectively. These individuals are either a contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19, or they are being tested for COVID-19 themselves. Quarantine is not necessarily a result of exposure within the school environment.
