  • Flu, COVID-19, and other infectious illness Safety Measures 2022-2023

    This year, the Effingham County School District is returning to implementing the same health and safety measures that proved effective in reducing the spread of strep, flu, COVID-19, and other infectious illnesses among our students and staff last school year. These include frequent hand-washing and sanitization, and enhanced disinfection procedures.

    The district’s leadership monitor state and local flu and COVID-19 conditions on a daily basis and continuously observe and evaluate to ensure that all safety protocols are being followed. We are also continuing to emphasize to parents that it is critically important for families to follow flu, COVID-19, and other infectious illness mitigation strategies and keep students at home if they show any symptoms of illness.

    Keeping schools open and safe continues to be our top priority this school year. We are confident that following these enhanced health and safety procedures will allow us to successfully navigate these challenging times.
