A top priority of the Burke County School District is the safety and wellness of our students, staff, and community. Prevention is key to stopping the spread of germs that cause illness. Here's how you can help:
Stay home when you are sick.
Parents should monitor their children's health, and if they suspect a fever, conduct a screening at home with a simple home thermometer, contact doctor, if needed and avoid public places.
Wash hands frequently using soap and water several times a day. Hand sanitizer is a second choice and to be used when soap and water are not available.
Use a face covering when you go out (unless you have trouble breathing or a medical condition that prevents it).
