The Southern Columbia Area School District received notice of one positive COVID-19 case of a staff member whose main work area is in the elementary building. The staff member was last in school on Tuesday 11/24. Our health professionals and administration are working with the Department of Health and it is determined that no one was identified as a close contact at this time.
Kindergarten through 6th grade will continue this week with in-person learning while grades 7-12 will remain with virtual instruction. We will continue working with the Department of Health and the Department of Education to make sure the District is following all protocols.
We as a District are doing well in preventing the spread of COVID 19 inside the schools. The School District’s ability to offer in-person instruction is dependent upon the continued responsible behavior of our school community. Please wear face-covering, practice social distancing to the greatest extent possible, follow proper hygiene procedures, always monitor for symptoms, and stay home when you are sick.
If you have any questions, please contact one of the building offices during school hours.
