COVID-19 Health Update
Students and Parents,
Please review the UPDATED GUIDANCE from Harnett County Schools regarding the handling of a possible, suspected, presumptive, or confirmed case of COVID-19.
Students and staff for whom an exception does not apply must be excluded from school/work for five (5) days after exposure. Students and staff for whom an exception does not apply may return to school/work after five (5) days if ASYMPTOMATIC and WITHOUT proof of a negative test. As a mask optional district, it is encouraged that anyone returning from exclusion (quarantine) wears a mask for an additional five (5) days.
As a reminder, Harnett County Schools follows guidance from the CDC and NCDHHS included on pages 13 -17 of the StrongSchools NC Toolkit. The StrongSchools NC Toolkit, in its entirety, can be accessed electronically at https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/media/164/open.
If you or someone in your home has symptoms, has tested positive, has been in contact with a positive person, or you have questions regarding school guidelines in reference to Covid-19, please contact our school nurses at 919-639-6161 ext. 1106 or via email at email@example.com.
IMPORTANT ATTENDANCE REMINDER:
When your student returns to school for ANY absence (Covid, Quarantine, Sick, etc), please send them a detailed note on the day they return to school.
The note needs to include their Name, PowerSchool Number, Reason for Absence and list each day they were absent.
Students will go directly to the cafeteria and turn in their note to the Attendance Committee in order to receive their excused admit slip.
Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation.
