  • CSD2 COVID Press Release
     
    8/26/21
     
    Parents & Guardians,
     
    Today, at Clarendon School District Two, we had one (1) Covid-positive case at MPS. There were nineteen (19) students and one (1) employee quarantined per SC DHEC guidelines. District nurses called the parents/guardians of all students who were exposed. The affected classrooms and buses have been cleaned and disinfected per CDC and SC DHEC guidelines.
     
     
    Clarendon School District Two remains dedicated to maintaining the safest possible environment for our staff and students. We respectfully request our families to please keep your children home if they are ill or if they have a known exposure to Covid-19. Any parent/guardian who is unsure if they should send a child to school may call any district nurse.
     
     
    While we acknowledge the concern and frustration of our students and families, please understand that according to the SC Department of Education, “Districts/schools are not permitted to offer only virtual instruction unless the district/school can no longer safely operate and provide face to face instruction due to staffing shortages resulting from COVID-19 or similar infectious disease. Should staffing shortages exist and the school/district feels it cannot safely offer face to face instruction, the school/district should contact the regional DHEC office and allow public health officials to assess the situation and provide a recommendation on operations…” “...The school/district should also notify the SCDE prior to announcement of the move to temporary virtual only instruction.” We will continue to remain vigilant in providing instruction to our students in the safest environment possible. Thank you for entrusting your children to Clarendon School District Two.

     DHEC Recommends Vaccinations, Mask Use, and Other COVID-19 Protocols in School Guidance for K-12 2021-2022 Academic Year

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    July 29, 2021

    COLUMBIA, S.C. — The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) has issued its COVID-19 interim guidance for K-12 schools as students, teachers, parents, and staff all prepare for the 2021-2022 school year. DHEC’s interim guidance includes recommendations that reflect the latest COVID-19 trends and is meant to protect everyone who plays a role in South Carolina’s students receiving a quality education safely. It is important to note that this guidance may change as the situation evolves.

    The full school guidance is available here. Here are some of the key points:

    • Schools are strongly encouraged to work with local public health officials and healthcare facilities and professionals to provide factual information and education about COVID-19 vaccination and to increase access to COVID-19 vaccines by coordinating vaccine clinics for staff, students, and families who wish to be vaccinated.
    • DHEC strongly recommends mask use for all people when indoors in school settings, especially when physical distancing is not possible. Children under two years old, anyone who has trouble breathing, or anyone unable to remove the face covering without assistance should not wear a mask. DHEC recognizes mask use cannot be mandated per the SC General Assembly but is providing the following guidance for teachers, staff, and parents.
    • At least three feet of distance between each student should be maintained to the greatest extent possible. 
    • Case investigation and contact tracing are critical strategies to identify and isolate cases and test and quarantine close contacts to reduce transmission.
    • Mask use is required on school buses and other public transportation per federal CDC Order regardless of the mask policy at school or the individual’s vaccination status; school systems should take appropriate steps to ensure compliance with this requirement by students, staff, and others.

    “Our first priority is the safety of our children and teachers,” said Dr. Edward Simmer, DHEC Director. “That is why, above all else, we’re urging all eligible South Carolinians to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated if they haven’t already done so. The last thing we want is for COVID-19 to spread through our schools causing avoidable illness. Our students and educators deserve the right to learn and teach in a safe, healthy environment, and vaccinations will make that possible.  The use of masks and other precautions recommended in our guidance will also help ensure a safe, healthy environment in our schools especially with the emergence of the Delta variant.”
