On September 27, 2021, our district was notified of five separate School Associated Cases of COVID-19. A "School Associated Case" means a probable or confirmed case of COVID-19 amongst students, teachers, staff members, coaches, volunteers, or any other person who was present on school property, or at a school function under circumstances that may result in the transmission or contraction of COVID-19 during the infectious period.
Persons who have been identified as close contacts to the School Associated Cases have been informed directly by the Calhoun County Public Health Department or the school district. If you have not received communication from the health department or school district, you are not impacted. No further action is required and you do not need to contact the school.
As of result of this notice, the district is taking the following actions:
All buildings will be open and classes will be conducted following our regular schedule.
All buildings will undergo enhanced sanitization protocols as guided by the Health Department and CDC guidelines in accordance with our Preparedness and Response Plan.
