Due to the internet outage in the county, as a result of AT&T cutting a line, the district is also experiencing internet issues. However, classes will be held for all N1 students. We are aware that many of our students are experiencing outages and will adjust attendance accordingly. We will continue to monitor the situation throughout the day and provide updates.

This outage also affects the phone lines at GES.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Parents, please take some time to review the most recent changes to the Parent/Guardian Toolkit for Reopening.

The changes are on Page 12 English ; Page 13 Spanish, pages 42 & 43 and are listed below.

Plexiglass Use in Schools - Per DHEC
Consistent with its existing policy, DHEC is providing further information regarding use of plexiglass barriers between students. As noted in the COVID-19: Frequently Asked Questions for School Officials from August 14, 2020, appropriate plexiglass use, combined with other measures, allows for shorter distances for social distancing.

In scenarios in which students are seated closer apart than six feet, the students would not be considered close contacts when:

1. appropriate plexiglass is utilized, and
2. distance between students is at least three feet apart, and
3. the students are wearing cloth face coverings or face masks that cover the nose and mouth (the plexiglass does not serve as a substitute to mask-wearing).

Plexiglass is considered appropriately sized and utilized if it surrounds three sides (the front and two sides) of the edges of the student’s desk and extends at least a foot above each child’s head when seated at the desk and at least a foot beyond the end of the desk on either side. There may be acceptable other configurations, as determined on an individual basis by DHEC.

If the above requirements are not met when using plexiglass to allow for shorter distances for social distancing, then those within 6 feet for a cumulative of 15 minutes would be considered a close contact and would have to be quarantined.

Page 33
Note:Those who test positive by a PCR (mouth or throat swab) test or similar viral test but do not have symptoms will be required to stay out of school until ten (10) days* after the specimen was collected.
*Note: some people who test positive may be required to extend the isolation period to twenty (20) days. Their doctor will need to determine if this is necessary.
Page 23
Either a negative PCR or Antigen test (mouth or nose swab) *If your provider does a follow up send off PCR test, your child must stay out of school until those results are received.

OR

Medical evaluation determines that symptoms were likely due to another cause (e.g. sore throat due to strep throat) In this case, your student can return when they meet criteria for that condition. Statement to return to school should say that symptoms not due to COVID-19 and were likely due to another cause. The alternate diagnosis must be listed.

Page 42 and 43

*The above italicized note regarding time on day 1 of quarantine does not apply. Day 14 is considered a full day of quarantine regardless of time of contact on day 1.

🐊Attention GES Families🐊

In case you missed tonight's phone call- here's all the information!

🐊Mrs. Hunter apologizes for not calling the past two weeks. She had surgery and has been out recovering. She is excited to be back in the Swamp this week!

🐊Self-Screen for COVID-19 Symptoms- Remember to self-screen your children each morning before sending them to school. If they have been a close contact to a positive case of COVID-19 or are have symptoms, please do not send them to school and contact Nurse Fran immediately at 803-321-2655.
