COVID GUIDANCE FOR THOMAS COUNTY SCHOOL FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released updated guidance for K-12 schools. The CDC currently recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.  

 

Since the release of the updated CDC guidance, the Thomas County School Board has voted to recommend, but not require, masks in our school buildings for the 2021-2022 school year. Please keep in my mind that this is a recommendation and not a mandate. As a system, we will honor the decision of parents when it comes to their child(ren) wearing or not wearing a mask in school. This same reasoning applies to employees and visitors. The decision of wearing a mask in the school buildings will be left up to each individual. Each school will have masks available for students and staff who choose to wear one indoors. Masks will not be required for any outside school functions or events.  

 

Due to a U.S. Department of Transportation and CDC order requiring masks to be worn on school buses, Thomas County Schools will require masks on our buses. Masks will be available for any student who needs one. Our buses will be cleaned twice a day. Assigned seating will be required on our school buses. 

 

Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout all facilities and on school buses. 

 

We will continue to follow the Georgia Department of Health (GaDPH) recommendations for our contact tracing protocols. Seating charts will continue to be required for classrooms and buses for contact tracing purposes. Individuals exposed to a positive case, who have been fully vaccinated along with those who have been diagnosed with COVID within the last 90 days and are symptom-free, will not be required to quarantine. 

 

Schools will be cleaned before, during, and after school on a daily basis. 

 

Water fountains and bottle refill stations will be available for use. 

 

To start the school year, school cafeterias will follow a modified schedule. 

 

Please help monitor your child for symptoms and keep him or her home from school if he or she is experiencing any of the following symptoms: 

Difficulty breathing

Shortness of breath

Vomiting

Diarrhea

Fever of 100.4 or higher

New loss of taste or smell 

Has tested positive for COVID
