COVID-19: What You Need to Know

COVID-19: What You Need to Know

District Three has and continues to take COVID-19 very seriously. Since mid-March 2020, we have taken steps and precautions to keep our school environments as safe as possible. You can learn about those steps and how we began our process back to 5-day, face-to-face learning on our Return To Learn page

We continue to take precautionary steps to keep our schools as safe and healthy as possible. Those include, but are not limited to:
  1.  Masks worn when within 6 feet of another student or staff member
  2. Extensive cleaning
  3. Plexiglass dividers
  4. Spaced classrooms
  5. Limited extracurricular events

Information and Resources

As part of our goal to be as transparent, accurate and safe as possible, District Three will be providing information daily when notified by DHEC that a student or staff member has tested positive for COVID-19. You can see that information here.

Our classrooms are set up for social distancing, our buses will be sanitized between routes and our students and staff will be wearing masks, shields or using dividers like the one pictured when it's impossible to be six feet apart. You can read more of our safety precautions and procedures here. 



In order for our schools to remain safe, clean and open, we need to hold our parents and students accountable too. Here is a daily home screening we are asking our students to complete each morning. If you believe your child might have COVID-19 but you're unsure, please contact your school nurse. You can download the screening here.
