Covid-19 Resources

Establishing and maintaining a safe and healthy learning environment for staff and students is the top priority for the Yadkin County Schools system. Below are resources available to our schools and communities regarding COVID-19, including information about the disease and ways in which we can work together to help prevent its spread.
 
Yadkin County Schools Case Count Dashboard
Student and staff case count data is provided for all schools within the Yadkin County Schools system. This information will be updated regularly. Please note: students and staff who are "isolated" have tested positive for COVID-19, while students and staff who are designated as "exclusions" were deemed "close contacts" to a student or staff member who tested positive for COVID-19. The YCS Schools Case Count Dashboard can be found here.

 

Yadkin County Schools Exclusion Rate Dashboard

In schools with an exclusion rate of less than 8%, face coverings will be voluntary. The exclusion rate for a school is calculated by combining the number of students who are currently positive for Covid-19, the number of stated contacts to a positive and the number of students exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19.  This total is then divided by the current student enrollment.  These numbers will be calculated daily.  When a school’s exclusion rate rises to 8% or above, the principal of the school will notify families when face coverings will be required.  Students and staff in that school will then be required to wear face coverings for a minimum of two consecutive weeks. You can find the current exclusion rates here.

 

Please note that face coverings will still be required on buses per CDC guidelines regardless of an individual school’s status.  

 
StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit
Yadkin County Schools will be utilizing the StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit for guidance and resources throughout the school year. The Toolkit is released by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and is updated periodically throughout the school year. The Toolkit can be found here.
 
Diagnostic Testing Program Consent Formhttps://testcenter.concentricbyginkgo.com/minor-consent/
The Diagnostic Testing Program allows students who become symptomatic at school to receive a PCR test with parental consent.  If you would like your student to be able to participate in this program you may give consent at any time.  We encourage parents/guardians to do this now so that when the need arises there will be no delays in testing their student.  The student will not be tested without notifying the parent/guardian before the test is given.

Social Distancing

Cloth Face Coverings
Cloth face coverings are meant to protect other people in case the wearer is unknowingly infected but does not have symptoms. Effective August 26, 2021, face coverings are required for all students and staff while indoors on school grounds. Face coverings are also required for students and staff on all school buses. Below is some additional information regarding cloth face coverings.
