ATTENTION! COVID INFORMATION

If a student has a pending COVID test, he/she should not attend school while the test results are being finalized. If the parent is notified that the test is negative, the student can return to school immediately. If the student has a positive test, the parent should provide documentation to the school and follow quarantine orders from the Mississippi State Department of Health. If a parent sends his/her child to school while waiting for COVID test results, the parent is knowingly risking the potential of COVID-19 transmission to staff members and other students. In addition, these actions could cause students and/or staff members to be quarantined by the Mississippi State Department of Health for 14 days.
