School District Nurse, Susan Ramsey, is doing a fantastic job coordinating our contact tracing efforts with the local McCurtain County Health Department. She is personally contacting each case and verifying information and works closely with health department officials and our administrators. Through all of her efforts the number of students and employees being quarantined is kept to a minimum.
