This week we welcome spectators back to watch our Hornet basketball teams play. The nurses report that our COVID cases are beginning to decline, and we are almost back to full capacity with our faculty and staff. We still encourage wearing masks and social distancing to the extent possible. We have four remaining home games and one away game. Come support our Hornets!

Message from Ware Shoals School District...We are aware that winter weather is being predicted for some areas, but reports we've received for our area from the National Weather Service lead us to believe that we can safely operate on a normal schedule. We will monitor conditions through the night, and if we experience freezing rain or snow that would make travel dangerous, you will get a call and text by 5:45 to notify you of an eLearning Day.

Today, Dr. Brannon Traxler, Dir. of Public Health for DHEC, held a video chat to review changes in guidance for schools regarding quarantines. The "requirement" that students without symptoms test on day 5 to return to school on day 6 is now a "recommendation" when testing is not feasible. Since testing is not feasible at this time due to a shortage of resources, students who were to test to return this week may return tomorrow if they are symptom-free and agree to wear a mask at school the rest of this week. https://www.facebook.com/wspatv/videos/1386468225127863

We realize there are quite a number of students who were expecting to test today and tomorrow to come back to school from being quarantined. Unfortunately, we have only 2 of our 5 nurses who are able to report to work today and tomorrow and the volume is too great to handle along with taking care of the usual daily tasks of a school nurse. We will allow for the use of at-home rapid tests. DHEC recommends that we proctor those tests, so they can be done at home via FaceTime with one of our nurses or with an administrator. If that is not possible, you may submit a test done at home but you will have to complete a DHEC form that will be available from the school nurse. It can be found on our website under the COVID tab. The form is called "At-Home Rapid Test Result Attestation." Complete guidance for at-home rapid testing is on pages 24-25 of the most recently released guidance booklet for schools, also available on our website under the COVID tab. Please let us know if you have any questions.

We still have dangerous areas on some of our back roads. Tomorrow’s temperature doesn’t reach above freezing until nearly 9am. We will be on a 2 hour delay for staff and car riders or bus riders whose parents can get them to school. Our buses will be on a 3 hour delay, so expect those students to arrive between 10:30 and 11:00. When we report our schedule online to TV stations, we won’t have the option to put all that information (2 & 3 hr delay, depending on transportation), so we will report a 2 hour delay. Wherever you’re coming from, please drive safely! Allow extra time for travel. Even some of our highways have runoff, which will result in black ice until the temperature gets sufficiently above freezing.
