The School District of Newberry County has updated its isolation and quarantine procedures. These updates can be found at the link below. The update includes a Test to Stay Option. This allows for students who are identified as a close contact to remain in school. The requirements to do so include wearing a mask at school for 10 days and testing on day 5. Students who are currently quarantined and may return to school under this option will be contacted today by the school. The change in our procedures goes into effect immediately. https://5il.co/15dem

Due to the threat of inclement weather on Friday, January 21, the School District of Newberry County will move instruction to an asynchronous (not live) instruction day. Teachers will post assignments for students to complete, but there will be no live Google Meets on this day. Schools and offices will be closed, but employees are expected to check email throughout the day and respond as needed. It is expected that we will return to normal schedule on Monday, January 24. If you have experienced symptoms, been identified as a close or household contact, or tested positive, please remember to report that to the school nurse through the use of the Covid Reporting Link found on the school and district websites. We appreciate your patience and understanding during our eLearning time and look forward to seeing our students on Monday morning.
The School District of Newberry County is currently experiencing a high number of students and staff impacted by Covid-19. As a result, all schools will shift from in-person instruction to eLearning virtual instruction from Tuesday, January 18 through Friday, January 21. There will be no school-related extracurricular or after school activities from January 18- January 21. Teachers who are not isolated or quarantined will use Google Meet to teach remotely and provide synchronous (live) instruction. The links for Google Meet, assignments, and class schedules, will be listed on the teacher’s page in Schoology. Parents who have questions regarding the requirements for eLearning virtual instruction should contact their child’s school or check their child’s Schoology. Breakfast and lunch for January 18-21 can be picked up at Newberry Middle School, Mid-Carolina High School, or Whitmire Community School between the hours of 10:30 am – 1:00 pm each day. We recognize that a shift of this nature impacts families and child-care, and of course, classroom instruction. However, it has become necessary as we struggle to maintain regular operations due to the high number of student and staff absences as a result of Covid-19. It is our goal to resume in-person learning on Monday, January 24. However, we will monitor the numbers and staff availability and notify parents and staff no later than Friday, January 21, if an extension is warranted. If your student is currently quarantined or isolated, this shift will not impact the length of the quarantine as told to them by the school nurse. The school will follow up with additional information as necessary. You can also follow the most recent updates on the school and district websites and Facebook pages. Again, eLearning instruction for all School District of Newberry County schools will begin on Tuesday, January 18 and will continue through January 21. We genuinely appreciate your patience and understanding as we strive to provide a safe learning environment for students and staff.

Also, some providers are saying to wait for 24 hours because some people are testing too soon. Again, this depends on the nature of your illness/symptoms. If you are extremely ill, do not wait 24 hours. Newberry County DHEC: Tuesdays-Sundays; no appt needed; Drive Thru; 11am-6pm; PCR Test Doctor's Care - Newberry - only testing if having certain symptoms. Rapid Antigen Test.
