Mitchell School District weekly COVID-19 update

COVID Report by Building: Data as of 11.4.2020.

Unfortunately, we will not receive updated COVID data today. Thus, I am reporting the data we received for Wednesday, 11.4.2020, two days ago.

Three different categories of affected students/employees are included here:

  • Active Case Count (Those with active cases of COVID-19.)
  • Total Confirmed Case Count (Both active and recovered cases.)
  • Recovered Case Count (Those who have now recovered from a case of COVID-19.)


Active Cases:      0

Total Confirmed Cases: 2

Recovered Count Case: 2

Gertie Belle Rogers:

Active Cases:      1

Total Confirmed Cases: 2

Recovered Count Case: 1

L.B. Williams:

Active Cases:      2

Total Confirmed Cases: 10

Recovered Count Case: 8

Mitchell Middle School:

Active Cases:      5

Total Confirmed Cases: 13

Recovered Count Case: 8

Mitchell High School:

Active Cases:      2

Total Confirmed Cases: 24

Recovered Count Case: 22


If your child’s classroom or program is affected by any DOH-identified cases, a separate notice will be sent to you as soon as we are aware of it.  This will be in addition to—and usually earlier than– this weekly report. Numbers include student and employee confirmed cases.  All confirmed cases are quarantined from school, in most cases well before test results are received, throughout the DOH-recommended period.

Though our numbers remain reasonable, please be aware that they are also on the rise.  It is possible that sometime in the coming weeks, we may need to move classrooms, schools, or the district to an eLearning format.  If that does occur, we will issue an announcement to that effect as far in advance as possible in order to allow everyone sufficient time to plan. At this time, however, school remains in session with students physically present in classrooms.

Thank you for your time and attention.



Joseph Graves, Superintendent of Schools
