Hamilton Southeastern Schools recently announced that it is tracking all COVID-19-related cases in its district buildings.

A post on the HSE Facebook page reads: “To be as transparent as possible with the public, we have created a COVID dashboard. New information was posted (Sept. 21) and will be done so every Monday morning to show new COVID-related absences and positive cases that occurred in the previous week.”

Dashboard data is collected from the school nurse in each building.  Past data will remain on the dashboard to view historical trends.

As of Oct. 5, four staff members and 17 students had tested positive for COVID-19. To view the dashboard, visit hseschools.org/happenings/reopening-hse/covid-dashboard?fbclid=IwAR03_5ofm56EPZ5QmCO0l54VUZ6NAgq4-T_c6jmO1ZeqOWpV_hYVqUaXgfc.
