The School District of Newberry County has updated its isolation and quarantine procedures to add a section on the impact the Test to Stay Option has on athletics: The primary goal of the TTS program is to keep students in the classroom in-person safely. However, when a student is returning to school for days 6-10 after five days of isolation/quarantine or remaining in school using the Test To Stay program, in order for them to participate in an extracurricular activity or sport, they must be able to consistently mask and/or remain more than 6 feet from others during the entire time. If this cannot be accomplished, then the participant should be excluded from the activity/sport through day 10 after exposure. https://5il.co/15giw

The School District of Newberry County has updated its isolation and quarantine procedures. These updates can be found at the link below. The update includes a Test to Stay Option. This allows for students who are identified as a close contact to remain in school. The requirements to do so include wearing a mask at school for 10 days and testing on day 5. Students who are currently quarantined and may return to school under this option will be contacted today by the school. The change in our procedures goes into effect immediately. https://5il.co/15dz0

The School District of Newberry County is updating its plan to address the impact that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, on our students and schools. Our district plan includes maintaining the health and safety of students, educators, and other school and district staff. The plan includes the following sections - universal and correct wearing of masks; modifying facilities to allow for physical distancing; handwashing and respiratory etiquette; cleaning and maintaining healthy facilities; contact tracing in combination with isolation; diagnostic and screening testing; efforts to provide vaccinations to educators, other staff, and students; appropriate accommodations for children with disabilities; and coordination with state and local health officials. This feedback is requested to meet the requirements established by the United States Department of Education for safely sustaining safe school operations for 2021-2022 to maximize in-person instruction. In-person instruction is essential for student learning and student well-being, and especially for being able to address the educational inequities that have been worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic. Please provide any feedback relevant to the above categories by completing the form found at https://forms.gle/zEUT5qBN1nxcEPqx5. We appreciate your input.

Due to the threat of inclement weather on Friday, January 21, the School District of Newberry County will move instruction to an asynchronous (not live) instruction day. Teachers will post assignments for students to complete, but there will be no live Google Meets on this day. Students will have a five-school-day window of time to turn in eLearning assignments. If assignments are not returned within that five-school-day window, the student may be counted absent for the day. It is expected that we will return to normal schedule on Monday, January 24. If your child has experienced symptoms, been identified as a close or household contact, or tested positive, please remember to report that to the school nurse through the use of the Covid Reporting Link found on the school and district websites. We appreciate your patience and understanding during our eLearning time and look forward to seeing our students on Monday morning.
