COVID-19 Precautions

If you are like me, you are very tired of the pandemic. This, however, can't allow us to be complacent. The positive cases are growing in Fayette County. As a result, non-academic activities have been canceled in the school district through November 16th. The guidance that all of us have received is: wear a mask, wash hands often, sanitize, and socially distance.

Please make sure your child has a mask before coming to school. They are required on the bus and in instances when students are traveling through the halls when social distancing is more difficult. We are encouraging students to wash their hands while at school, and have arranged classrooms to be in compliance with social distancing guidelines. Everton's staff is sanitizing desks, tables, chairs, door knobs, equipment, etc. throughout the day.

At this point, we have not had a break out of the virus at Everton. That isn't saying it couldn't happen. We need your help. Please talk with your child about the precautions, and wearing a mask when required. Also, please don't send you child to school if he/she is not well.
