Central Indiana School Shuts Down Temporarily As Third Coronavirus Case Found Within Hoosier State
Monday, March 9, 2020

A central Indiana elementary school is closed today after a student tested positive for the coronavirus.

The Avon Community School Corporation issued a statement last night.

It says:

On Sunday, March 8th at 10:25 p.m. Avon Community School
Corporation was notified by the Hendricks County Health Department that a
student from Hickory Elementary has tested positive for COVID-19/Coronavirus.
The law directs us to keep student medical information confidential.

The Health Department received the positive test result late Sunday
evening and shared it with us immediately. Because this information just became
available, we believe it is prudent to exercise our option to have an e-Learning day
on Monday, March 9th for the entire school district.

Although it is not required, the State Health Commissioner and Hendricks
County Health Department have recommended that Hickory Elementary School
be closed for two weeks through Friday, March 20th. It is our intent to provide our

Hickory students with ongoing learning opportunities, which may include e-
learning and other experiences. Hickory students and staff will be able to return on

Monday, April 6th, following Spring Break.
