We are adding COVID-19 Resources to help parents who might want to review resources provided by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and the NC Department of Health and Human Services. Since the amount of information can be overwhelming, you can always call us at school (336-551-1120) or email Nurse Jackson (firstname.lastname@example.org
) or email Principal Amy Rankin (email@example.com
) with any questions.
School Screening Protocols. Most situations will easily fall into this screening flow chart, however as we all know there are always different scenarios that require us to refer to other StrongSchools NC Public Health Guidance and our Local Health Department to help us advise our families when it is okay to come to school.
When to Quarantine. This resource guide will help someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 better understand when to quarantine. We quarantine to help prevent the spread of disease that could occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms.
Considerations For COVID-19 Testing of Children Who Attend a K-12 School. Families of students, school administrators, staff, and local health leaders are working together to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We have implemented detailed protocols to prevent and respond to potential cases of the virus among their students and staff.
Wearing a Cloth Face Covering. We know that wearing a cloth face covering is one of the best tools we have for reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our school. Wearing a cloth face covering helps mitigate the spread of the virus by providing a barrier for transmission. We wear our face coverings throughout the day, except when we are eating, drinking, or engaging in strenuous exercise. Throughout the day teachers allow their class to take short breaks from wearing cloth face covering at times and in settings where risk for transmission is lower.
