Effective immediately . . .
All Seminole County Schools closed through March 27.
The Seminole County School System was notified last night that a school employee exhibited symptoms of COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus. This employee was possibly exposed to the virus in a physician’s office in another state. We called parents and guardians of all students who were in contact with this employee, and will continue to follow the protocol recommended by the Georgia Department of Health while we wait for the test results. We are in close communication with public health officials and the Georgia Department of Education, and we will share updated information as it becomes available. In an effort to implement proactive measures to minimize risk to students, employees, and families, all schools will be closed through March 27. Also, all extra-curricular activities have been suspended. At this time, students should plan to return to school on Monday, March 30th unless notified otherwise. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we go through these unchartered times. “As always, the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff will be at the forefront of all decision-making,” commented Mark Earnest, Superintendent of Seminole County Schools.
