Greetings MCS Parents and Guardians. Just a reminder that COVID-19 cases continue to be on the rise here in Martin County and in our region. That is the information we continue to receive from the agencies monitoring this pandemic. We ask that you contact your school nurse, teacher, or school principal asap if symptoms of COVID-19 are present with your students. Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, new cough, new loss of taste or smell, chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. Similarly, we thank you for continuing to do your part by following the 3-Ws: Wear a mask, Wash your hands, Wait 6 feet apart. Thank you for your understanding and support.
Greetings MCS Family! Over the Thanksgiving break, we want to still attend to the health needs of our students and staff. We aim to ensure everyone is healthy and ready to return to school next week. We are asking that the Principal and/or School Nurse at your school are notified if symptoms of COVID-19 are present. Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, new cough, new loss of taste or smell, chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. If students and/or staff falls into any of the categories mentioned above, please do not attend school until your school nurse (or someone at the school) follows up with the student's parents or staff member to better understand the situation and determine subsequent steps such as the return to school date. Thank you all and we sincerely appreciate your assistance during COVID-19. On behalf of Martin County Schools, We hope each of you is able to have a restful, safe, and Happy Thanksgiving. David Fonseca, Superintendent of Schools, Martin County Schools
