Based on updated health and safety guidance from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, and in consultation with our partners at the Alamance County Health Department, ABSS will be slightly revising our school arrival procedures at all schools. Beginning on Wednesday morning, April 21, we will no longer perform temperature checks for car riders, bus riders or staff members.
Everyone will still enter school buildings at designated entrances only and will still complete check-in procedures at a screening station and receive a colored wristband. Temperature checks will no longer be part of the morning screening process. Face coverings are still required for everyone on every campus and all other health and safety protocols will remain in place until further notice.
It continues to be everyone’s responsibility to remain at home if not feeling well.
All school districts received initial guidance and requirements about school reopening from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) and from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI).
