Welcome Back to School!
Dear Eagles Community,
Everyone came back to school recharged and ready to learn. It was so nice to see our children again after the long break.
Hopefully water will be returned to those that have not gotten it yet and that the boil advisory will be lifted. Thank you for your patience as we all deal with this bump in the road. If today is any indication of how things will go, we couldn't have asked for a more peaceful day full of learning. Thank you!!
Even though it looks like the weather at the beginning of the month will be warmer than usual, please make sure to send your child with a jacket, hat, and gloves when the weather warrants it. Speaking of jackets, we have dozens in our lost and found. If your child is missing a sweatshirt, gloves, jacket, or water bottle please ask them to visit the lost and found, I bet the missing items are there.
Thank you for all you do each day to prepare your child for success. I hope that you have a great New Year.
If a student tests positive for COVID (at home or at a healthcare provider), they would isolate for 5 days from when their symptoms began. We will recognize the guidelines established by the CDC and NCDHHS regarding the use of a face covering to be worn for days 6-10 upon return to school.
Our normal exclusionary symptoms of fever, diarrhea, and vomiting are in effect. If a student has a fever, diarrhea, or vomiting, they must remain at home until symptoms are resolved for 24 hours.
Hand hygiene, enhanced cleaning protocols, and improved ventilation are all still priorities and important mitigating strategies.
Face coverings remain optional, to be worn by anyone at anytime.
Physical distancing such as 3 ft or 6 ft apart is no longer required.
Contact tracing is not required.
Following the guidelines established by the CDC and NCDHHS, MAHEC will not be providing rapid antigen testing in our schools. Staff and families may order at home tests for free via this link: https://www.covid.gov/tests.
MAHEC will send home further guidance regarding when students need to stay home due to an illness.
For students where an absence is Covid related please indicate this in your parent or health provider's note.
Students/teachers will follow the same guidelines for makeup work as they would for any other illness or injury.
