    2020-2021 COVID-19 Traditional Learning Option
    General Guidelines

    The following is based on information within Georgia’s Path to Recovery for K-12 Schools. It is not intended to be an exhaustive or detailed list of expectations, but will provide an overview of the anticipated guidance for re-entry to the traditional setting on August 5, 2020.

    We know how important it is for our students and staff to come back to school. We also understand that we are in the midst of a pandemic and realize that some parents will choose the Virtual Learning Option. Both the traditional and virtual models are extremely important to our school district, and we will keep the safety of our students and staff at the forefront of all of our decisions. The partnership between the school and the parent is more important now than ever before. By supporting one another and increasing communication, we can make the best decisions for our students, staff, and community.

    The principal and the school nurse will be the school’s main COVID-19 point of contact. Periodic random temperature checks and health screenings of students and staff will be conducted prior to school starting and throughout the day.  Students and staff with COVID-19 symptoms or a temperature of 100.4°F and above will be immediately isolated and sent home. The Effingham County Nurse Coordinator will notify local health officials immediately for guidance on next steps, including closures. Measures will be taken to ensure student and staff privacy
