Partial Mitchell School District weekly COVID-19 update due to SD Health Department delays

COVID-19 Report by Building: Data as of 10.14.2020.

(Today’s—10.16.2020—data is not yet available so we are reporting what we had as of Wednesday, two days ago. We will update these numbers when 10.16.20 data is made available to us.)

Three different categories of affected students/employees will be reported:

  • 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.)

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.

Thank you for your time and attention.




Joseph Graves, Superintendent of Schools
