Important Updates: 10/20/2020

Good evening families,

First, for the safety of your child’s classmates and teachers, please keep your student home if they are ill. It is imperative that we all work together to keep everyone healthy. And please notify your child’s school right away if they have tested positive for COVID or have been exposed to someone with COVID.

Second, I want to clarify that the COVID Data Dashboard on the district’s website only identifies positive cases for our students and employees in our brick and mortar schools. Anyone who has been in close contact with an infected person – which is defined as being within six feet for 15 minutes or more – must quarantine for 14 days. Those who are quarantining are not included on the dashboard unless they become positive for COVID.

Please know that we continue to work very closely with the Volusia County Health Department to make sure all the appropriate healthcare measures are being followed. Please help us by observing our policies for face coverings, social distancing when possible, and frequent hand washing.
