The Pacific High School varsity football game against Hermann scheduled for Friday, October 16th has been canceled. We feel fortunate to have had minimal exposures up to this point. However, due to a number of athletes having to quarantine due to a recent positive COVID-19 exposure on campus, coupled with a number of injured athletes, the football game for this Friday is canceled. At this time, the game with St. James on Oct. 23rd is still on.
We want to emphasize that these exposures were not a result of practices or competitions and we do not have a situation of community spread amongst any of our teams. Most of the exposures are a result of proximity to other students in class and social interactions outside of school.
As COVID-19 cases are on the rise across Franklin County, please remain vigilant. Monitor yourself and your family for symptoms, which include fever, cough and shortness of breath. If you or any member of your family exhibit these symptoms, please stay home from school, contact your medical provider for advice, and notify your child(ren)’s school immediately.
There is nothing more important to the Meramec Valley School District than the safety and health of our students, our staff, and their families.
