Hawk News from the Principal 11/30
Hello HCES family,
We hope you all had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving break.
Please know that we are still following all guidelines and being diligent with all precautions at school. We have had very few positive cases and we want to keep our numbers as low as possible, so we will continue to remind our parents to alert us if our students have been exposed or are diagnosed with Covid-19. I have provided the link below to the ADPH Toolkit that all schools in Alabama are required to follow. I am required to report any positive cases or any positive exposures to our district nurses who then direct us to our next steps. The link below explains how we report cases of exposure and diagnosis as well as how the nurses determine who needs to quarantine. It is a very lengthy process as we contact trace and speak with all parties involved. Please know we take this very seriously as we want our school to be safe for everyone.
If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to us. As always, thank you for your continued support.
