Attention Parents!

In-Person Classes Resume

Here's some very important information about school operations. We will return to our face-to-face instruction this Monday, January 25th. In order to keep our students safe and the school building open, students will notice that plexiglass partitions are now in the majority of our classrooms. This should significantly reduce the number of students we would need to quarantine in the event of a positive COVID test. However, it is still a possibility and students will need to continue to wear their masks. So parents, please mention to your student that for us to stay within DHEC protocol and not quarantine them if a classmate tests positive for COVID, is to both have the plexiglass AND them wearing their masks.

Also parents, please continue to not send your student to school if there is COVID or even COVID testing due to symptoms in your household. Please email me and the nurse and we will determine if there is a need for quarantine and if so, the return dates. So just to reiterate, if ANYONE in the household is waiting on COVID test results or planning to be tested for COVID due to symptoms, the student should not come to the school building.
We really appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation.

And we look forward to seeing your students here, bright and early Monday morning!
