COVID - 19 Update -02/23/21

February 23, 2021 

Dear Mesick Consolidated School Community, 

Unfortunately, I have to inform you that a student that attends the Mesick Jr/Sr High School has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual has not been in the building for a number of days.  This individual, as well as close contacts, are required to quarantine for 10 days.  All close contacts have been informed.  

We have had several positive cases over the last few weeks.  Parents have been doing a wonderful job by keeping their kids home when they do not feel well.  This allows for less exposure to the virus and often less time for students to quarantine.   Please keep in mind that test results can still take several days.  Mesick Adolescent Wellness Center located in the Mesick Junior/Senior High School does offer free rapid Covid 19 testing (Insurance will be billed for the administration of the test but there will be no additional cost to you).  You will receive the results within 15-30 minutes.   This testing is available for Mesick students by appointment only.  To schedule an appointment please call 231-306-3010.     

Watch for symptoms of COVID-19 illness, which are; 

  • fever or chills

  • cough 

  • shortness of breath or difficulty breathing 

  • fatigue 

  • muscle or body aches 

  • headache

  • the new loss of taste or smell

  • sore throat

  • congestion or runny nose

  • nausea or vomiting 

  • diarrhea. 

If you are interested in following Mesick Consolidated Schools COVID numbers you may find them on our website under the COVID 19 tab.  If you have questions regarding the information in this letter, please contact us.  Student and staff safety continues to be our number one priority.

Blessed to be a Bulldog,

Scott Akom
