Jacksonville Commons Middle School principal urges his staff to not indulge in the media coverage of the school’s positive Covid-19 cases on social media.
On Tuesday, Jacksonville Commons Middle School principal Curtis Ehmann sent out an email to staff telling them to “not become a part of the media surrounding this by commenting on FB or giving comments to the Daily News.”
The email was about a story posted by Jacksonville Daily News, who reported that staff at the school had tested positive for the coronavirus.
Over the weekend, The North Carolina Beat learned that besides the one positive case reported earlier last week, four new staff members allegedly tested positive for COVID-19.
READ THE EMAIL SENT TO STAFF BY JCMS PRINCIPAL:
Shouldn’t teachers blow the whistle to the media about COVID-19 cases at their school if the principal knows there are positive cases and doesn’t alert staff about it? Or should they not know anything?
