The Lee County Public School division is informing parents and guardians that a student or staff member at Jonesville Middle School has been diagnosed with COVID19. This person was on school premises on October 1, 2020.
All schools will remain open at this time. They are working with staff from the LENOWISCO Health District to identify anyone who had close contact with the person to determine if they might have been exposed to the COVID19 virus. If you or your child are identified as having been potentially exposed, then the Lee County Health Department will contact you to determine if you need to quarantine.
