KOIN, WA — A fourth grade class at Burns Elementary School was quarantined after a student tested positive in the class, and the teacher died earlier this week.
On September 23, Karen James, a teacher at Burns Elementary School, told her parents through her parent’s messaging app that she tested positive for COVID-19 and would be leaving the classroom for some time.
By Monday she was gone. Parents told KOIN6 News They received a phone call from the principal of Burns Elementary School informing them of her death. However, parents said the school did not disclose COVID-19 cases in the classroom.
District officials confirmed with KOIN 6 on Friday morning and were told to quarantine the children in the class until October 7, after another student tested positive. Children can return to class until October 11th. They do distance learning.
Under state guidelines, the health district stated that schools only need to be notified if someone is considered to be in close contact. However, some parents told KOIN 6 News that they think they need to notify the entire classroom so they can decide for themselves which steps to take.
The district said on Friday the two appeared to demonstrate outside the district office.
