Panther Family-

Hope you're having a great week! Please take a moment to read the Community message from Superintendent Snell that includes the updated COVID safety guidelines on the mask protocols.



NEW Safety Protocols 4/14/2021

Phase 2 is as follows and will begin Monday, April 19th

Mask Protocol

  • All staff and students must self-check before coming to school or boarding a bus.
  • Teachers will continue to wear masks unless socially distanced. Masks will be on when in close proximity to students.
  • Data will determine if staff mask protocols will be lifted with staff.
  • In phase 2, masks are optional for students **(with exceptions)** Some teachers with health problems or compromised immunity might require masks in their classrooms. We expect full cooperation.

Quarantine Rules (this is a change)

  • Mandatory quarantines will apply to staff and students with home exposure. (14 days)
  • School exposure quarantines. The school will notify parents and staff of any exposure. Parents will be given the choice to quarantine their children. If choosing not to quarantine, the student that is exposed should be self-checked before leaving home. Exposed students who continue to attend in person, will be checked by the nurse at the beginning of each day. Any student with symptoms after exposure will be quarantined for 10 days or an alternative diagnosis by a physician.

Continued frequent hand washing, building cleaning, and all other COVID-19 protocols will remain in place.

Please note that at any time if the county returns to a COVID status of "Red" or we see a dramatic increase in COVID cases on campus or in a classroom, masks may be required again.
