CORONAVIRUS: 68 new cases reported in Seattle Public Schools’ weekly update

Every Monday, the Seattle Public Schools COVID-19 data dashboard is updated. This week, it shows 68 new cases (compared to 58 new cases a week before) among the district’s more than 90 schools. Here are the school-by-school breakouts for our area, with the changes compared to what was on the dashboard last week – again, the numbers are cumulative for the entire school year so far:

Denny International Middle School – 18, up 3
Chief Sealth International High School – 18, unchanged
Highland Park Elementary – 10, up 1
Roxhill Elementary – 10, unchanged

The dashboard still does not break down student cases/staff cases school by school; for the Southwest Region – West Seattle and South Park – 91% of the cases are among students.

    When you say new cases do you mean tested positive and in a hospital or simply a positive test?

      “New cases” is the general terminology government agencies have been using for positive tests.

    It would be nice if the public and taxpayers would know how many classrooms per school have to go back to online learning for a couple of weeks due to a quarantine needed for that class; the Kent school district tells taxpayers and community how many classes per school needs to do online learning for a few weeks using a very able to understand map of the schools in their district.  Not exactly sure why others school district are still not being transparent with this information which is easy to make a map on their website. Technology and computer are part of our everyday life and should be very easy to create.

      SPS has not shut any classrooms at all so far. If they do it will appear in this report.

        Not true. Many classrooms (including my son’s), have moved to remote to wait out the quarantine period.

          Some people are being smart and thinking of others. Finally.

Sorry, comment time is over.
