If your child is experiencing COVID symptoms, is a close contact, or has received a positive diagnosis, please complete the link found in the weekly reminders email. After you report, someone from the district will contact you to provide you with guidance and a tentative return to school date. If your child is planning to return early from quarantine with a negative test result, please contact the school to make us aware and send in the negative results.
- Please be aware that in a high spread COVID time, masks are strongly recommended for students and staff. Please be aware that in a high spread COVID time, masks are strongly recommended for students and staff. DHEC’s guidance now states that students who were within 3 to 6 feet of an infected student and were wearing a mask during the exposure time are no longer considered a close contact and therefore do not have to quarantine regardless of whether or not the infected student was wearing a mask.
We thank you for your continued support and are happy to be working with your family! We look forward to seeing you all back at RBE where we will continue to Lead. Learn. Love….and Pass It On!
