How is the Covid Dashboard updated?
Each of our building nurses maintains a database with all of the relevant Covid information. This database tracks all students and staff with positive Covid results. It also tracks the close contacts of each positive case, including students and staff members who are close contacts to those testing positive for Covid outside of our student and staff population.
Each day at 3PM, the central office staff updates the numbers on the Covid Dashboard, which is available on eastporter.k12.in.us. The numbers indicate the current active cases at each building. A case is no longer considered active once the student or staff member may return to school.
Please know that oftentimes, positive cases are reported after school hours. So, if you hear that there is an active case and you don’t see it reflected on the Covid Dashboard the same business day, it is just because of timing and that case will be added the next day.
