New Horizon School

As communities within our state prepare for and respond to the COVID-19 outbreak, we will share information on our website.

 

At New Horizon School (NHS), we have received no reports of a student, staff member, family member of a student, or family member of a staff member who is suspected of having been exposed, being tested, or diagnosed with COVID-19 at this time. Therefore, school is currently open and in session. Should this change, we will notify NHS families and update here on our website.

 

Prevent the Spread of Germs:

 

The best way to prevent the spread of germs is to use good hygiene practices. Take simple steps to reduce your risk of getting and spreading viral respiratory infections like the flu, common cold, and COVID-19.

 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick and avoid close contact with others.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash hands.

 

In addition, Washington State Governor Inslee and King County Executive Dow Constantine have recommended that people avoid large events and gatherings whenever possible during the COVID-19 outbreak.
