Camden County Schools return Tuesday, Aug. 4. Due to Tropical Storm Isaias, the district delayed the start date from Monday to Tuesday.
The school system will offer in-person learning and a virtual learning option for families who might not be ready to send students back amid the pandemic.
Students participating in virtual learning will not be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities, including athletics.
For students returning for in-person learning, masks are strongly encouraged but not required. Parents will need to provide them but the school will have some available for students in need. Employees will also be provided masks and face shields upon request.
Temperature checks will not be universal but may be taken if a student reports feeling unwell. Parents are encouraged to check temperatures for their children at home before school.
Other safety measures will be put into place, including sanitization methods and prepackaged meal items.
Students who feel sick or experience COVID-19 symptoms will be placed in an isolation room while they wait for their parent.
Should a student or employee test positive for the virus, the Georgia Department of Public Health will provide notification to ensure HIPPA law compliance. School officials say employees are not allowed to contact trace or notify parents of a positive case.
