With this information and through the collaboration with county health officials, the following information is being communicated as it relates to the start of the upcoming school year.
The start of the school year has been delayed until Wednesday, Aug. 19. In-person and virtual classes will begin at 8 a.m. on that day.

Each student/family and staff member will be expected to self-screen at home for symptoms of COVID-19. If individuals are sick, then they should not come to school.
Students and staff must be fever-free for 72 hours (without the use of medication) before returning to school; if the fever is related to a positive case of COVID-19, the positive individual is required to stay home for a period of 14 days.
If a staff member or student has an immediate family or household member that is COVID-19 positive, that staff member or student’s parent or guardian must notify the school and self-isolate for 14 days.
The use of water fountains will be for bottle or cup refills only. Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school with them each day.
