Good morning! We are planning on returning to in-person schooling on Monday, January 31. Washoe County School District has put together this handy COVID Symptom checker to help families know when to send students to school and when to keep them home. The phone numbers on it are for WCSD students and staff, not PLHS students and staff, but the rest of the information is good for everyone. Having kids in school is important, but so is keeping them home when they have symptoms and/or exposure.

Last night the Pyramid Lake Tribal Health Clinic (PLHTC) tested our Girls Basketball team, our Boys Basketball Team, our MS Volleyball team, and our Cheerleaders for COVID. Two students tested positive. They are both freshmen on the Girls Basketball team. These two athletes were immediately sent home and will not return to campus or practice until cleared to return by the PLTHC. The rest of the team was cleared to practice this week and to play on Friday at our home game against Virginia City. If your student is a freshman, they may have been in close contact with these students and we encourage you to get your student tested. We also encourage you to get your student vaccinated against COVID-19 and to get a booster six months after their initial vaccination. Health Officials recommend that you mask up using medical masks, not cloth masks, to protect against the highly contagious Omicron variant of COVID. If you can do so, we recommend you send your child to school in a new N95 or KN95 mask each day. Please let us know if your student or anyone in your household tests positive for COVID so we can continue to respond to the pandemic with the best information we can.

​Hello Pyramid Lake Families,  At our weekly COVID testing of athletes this morning, one of our girls' basketball players tested positive. A team manager also tested positive. They both have been sent home to quarantine until cleared to return by a health care provider. Additionally, all players on the team who are not fully vaccinated have been sent home to quarantine for five days, per the PLPTHC orders.  In discussion with the PLPTHC and the NIAA, we have decided not to send home all of the vaccinated players. Because most of the team is fully vaccinated, we have enough players to play our home game vs. McDermitt today at 4:00. All of our boys basketball players and cheerleaders tested negative for COVID.  We continue to follow current guidelines in this changing pandemic to keep your student, the school, the staff, and the community safe. We encourage you to get your student vaccinated and then get a booster 6 months after their initial vaccination. We also encourage you to investigate the most effective masks for preventing the transmission of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

Dear families, We are very sorry for the short notice, but we are sending students home early today. School will dismiss at 10:30 and buses will take students home then. A staff member who has had close contact with a great number of students as they have supported students to get missing work made up and finals completed, has tested positive for COVID-19 this morning. This staff member is also a coach, but the team has not yet practiced this week. The team is getting tested this morning and we will communicate separately with families of the team. Because this staff member has had close contact with so many students of so many grade levels and with so many staff members, the only way to make sure we stop an outbreak before it starts is to send students home for the rest of the week. Please stay tuned for more information about a virtual learning day tomorrow. We know this will be an inconvenience for some families, but we want to make sure we are putting the health and safety of our students, their families, and the community first. Thank you for your understanding.
