Out of an abundance of caution, we are currently requiring parents of all current students and registering new students who have traveled outside of the United States in the past 14 days to call their school for guidance regarding COVID-19. Parents should call prior to their child coming to school or attending any school activity, before, during, and after school hours. This also includes students who have had family members or individuals living at home who have traveled outside of the United States in the past 14 days.

Hall County School District team members who have traveled outside of the United States in the past 14 days should contact their principal or direct supervisor prior to coming to work or to any school campus activity—before, during, or after school hours. This also includes school volunteers, community coaches, and all team members who have had family members or individuals living at home who have traveled outside of the United States in the past 14 days.

We have protocols in place for additional steps for those individuals who have visited countries designated as “high risk” by the federal government. A list of those countries will be updated daily at the following link:
