Simpson County Schools had 10 active COVID-19 cases within the school system’s students and staff as of Friday, Nov. 13.
Simpson County Schools Superintendent Tim Schlosser said there have been zero transmissions traced back to schools in the contact tracing protocol.
“I can’t say enough about the work the students and staff have done in following the safety protocols of social distancing, wearing masks, and good hand hygiene,” Schlosser said in a letter sent to students and parents. “It is evident that these practices have been working and effective.”
Schlosser gave an update Nov. 13 on the status of COVID-19 in the school system. The update is a video that can be seen on the Simpson County Schools Facebook page.
Plans were not announced during the update to change the current format for attending classes, which consists of students attending in person class two days per week and attending virtual classes three days per week.
Schlosser said the school system monitors the number of cases within our county, school district, and state daily.
