Thanksgiving Health Reminders

November 10, 2020

Last Friday marked our 10th week of school and we have been enjoying the beautiful days outside.  

So far, we have avoided any positive cases of COVID-19 with students or staff.  That said, the number of possible exposures continues to increase, and we have more reports of family members with a positive diagnosis. Southwest Virginia is currently high risk for transmission. With many gatherings planned for Thanksgiving, we need to pay extra attention to staying healthy. Please continue to:

  •  Wear a mask
  • Wash your hands often/travel with hand sanitizer
  • Keep social get-togethers small and have them in well ventilated areas
  • Find new ways to enjoy the outdoors
  • Get a flu shot
  • Shop online and avoid crowded stores

A positive case in a classroom means that all students and staff with close contact will have to quarantine for 14 days.  Help us extend our time providing in-person classes by taking precautions in the coming weeks. We appreciate all you are doing to slow the spread.
