COVID Dashboard

In coordination with the Benton-Franklin Health District (BFHD), Finley School District is providing this COVID-19 Data Dashboard to inform parents, students, staff and the community about confirmed positive cases throughout our school district. We will update this dashboard on a weekly basis as new information is available. For current case counts and the most up-to-date information in our county, please visit the BFHD Case Count webpage HERE. (NOTE: Click through to pg. 2 of the graph to view the latest 14-day rate per 100K people). COVID-19 Positive Data reported includes enrolled students and staff who are physically present in the building(s) or on school grounds in any capacity, including in-person learning, hybrid learning, etc.

What happens when a staff or student tests positive for COVID-19?

As required by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) and local/state health authorities, all schools must be prepared for the possibility of positive COVID-19 cases and the need to quarantine. Quarantining is a necessary step to prevent further spread of the virus and protect staff and students. Our district will follow all protocols established by the Benton Franklin Health District (BFHD) and the state Department of Health (DOH). Additionally, we will communicate as quickly as possible with all parties involved, while adhering to applicable FERPA and HIPAA privacy regulations.

Upon confirmation that a student or staff member has tested positive for COVID-19, BFHD will conduct any required contact tracing. If it is determined that a student or staff member had close contact^ with a person who tested positive, they will be contacted directly by FSD staff with instructions about monitoring symptoms, quarantining/isolation, and testing. Additionally, students and staff who have been determined as NOT being close contacts will receive notification as follows:

If the confirmed individual attends Finley Elementary School (K-6th grade), the school’s secretary will call:

  • Students from the same class
  • Students from the same bus route (if applicable)

If the confirmed individual attends Finley Middle School or River View High School (6th-12th grade), an automated phone recording (“robocall”) from FSD will be sent to all students in that same school building.

When notifying students/staff who are not close contacts, FSD will only indicate: 1) whether the individual who tested positive was a staff or a student; 2) what class (grades K-5) or cohort (grades 6-12) the individual was in. The automated notification calls will never identify the individual’s name, gender, grade level, or age.

^ Close contact is defined as within 6 feet for a cumulative total of 15 or more minutes over a 24-hour period with anyone with confirmed COVID-19 during the infectious period. (- Benton Franklin Health District)
