Please do not send your child to school if they are displaying any symptoms of illness.
As a reminder, the incubation period for coronavirus (the time between exposure to an infection and the appearance of first symptoms) is 2 to 14 days, but typically symptoms develop within 5 days. In every case of a positive test result, we continue to notify the local health department, conduct contact tracing and quarantine anyone who has been in close proximity to someone who tests positive.
Please watch your email in the next few days for updated quarantine information.
As always, please monitor your child for symptoms of illness including fever, chills, new cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, new loss of taste and/or smell, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. If you or family members display any symptoms, please contact your physician or call the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services’ coronavirus hotline at 1-866-462-3821.
If you learn that your student has tested positive for COVID-19, please call the school immediately at 704-543-1127. If it is after hours or on the weekend, please email me at: email@example.com.
