I mask up to get students back in school. By practicing healthy habits, such as masking up, I protect myself and everyone around me, helping return our children to in-person learning sooner. I wear a mask for the health and safety of all our students and staff. 😷➡️ tpchd.org/mask
Tracking cases within Tacoma Public Schools
In the event of a positive COVID-19 case at a TPS school or office location we work directly with the Tacoma Pierce County Health Department (TPCHD) as they conduct contact tracing. Based on the guidance provided by TPCHD and the school COVID-19 case response tool kit, notifications are sent to impacted staff, students and families. If an individual is found to have close contacts while contagious, those who were in close contact will be required to quarantine. Each case and situation requires unique action as determined by the TPCHD.
