The district has completed the review of the new DHEC guidance provided last week. We have updated our district COVID-19 response plan based on this new information.

Under the 2021–2022 School and Childcare Exclusion List, the district is required by law to isolate individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 as well as contact trace and quarantine individuals who are identified as close/household contacts of positive COVID-19 cases.

The district will follow the guidelines linked here for isolation periods, perform contact tracing procedures and quarantine protocols. 

In order to improve the efficiency of these processes, our district level COVID Team has been expanded to offer assistance with contact tracing and notification of close/household contacts. The district will utilize the Blackboard communications system to make initial contact via an automated email, text and phone call. The initial contact will be followed with more information regarding the required isolation or quarantine protocol. The district will only contact those individuals who are positive for COVID-19 or are identified as close/household contacts. General notifications for positive cases will not be sent to individuals who are not required to follow isolation or quarantine protocols. 

Students and staff should continue to report their positive or close/household contact status directly to the district using the links below. Please do not report your status directly to a teacher, staff member or school. It is very important that you use these links to report any positive test results or outside close/household contacts.

Thank you for your patience as we implement these new processes and guidelines. If there are any future changes to our COVID-19 protocols we will communicate them as soon as they are determined.
