Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome back! I know this school year looks different.  Nevertheless, we are super excited to have our Braves with us and back in school!  Please know the safety and well being of your students is of the utmost importance to us.  In an effort to continue building our stakeholder relationships with trust and transparency, this message is to clarify communication expectations regarding COVID-19 confirmed positive cases or close contact quarantines that may arise in our school.

You can expect to hear from us about any positive, confirmed COVID-19 case reported to our building by 7:00 p.m. each day.  If a case is reported outside of that you’ll hear by 7:00 p.m. the next day.   

If a member of your family was found to have been in close contact, requiring a quarantine, an administrator will contact you directly.

The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) considers “close contact” as being at a distance of 6 feet or less for 15 minutes or longer during the positive individual’s infectious period (48 priors to their symptoms showing).  It’s important that we remember what close contact is and that we will only notify an individual found to have been in close contact with someone who tested positive.

Finally, parents and guardians, it is important to consistently take your child’s temperature every morning and keep him/her home if he/she is unwell.  This helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If you have any additional questions, please call (706)866-9211 to speak to an administrator or school nurse.

We appreciate your support and partnership.
