March 3, 2020 Update

 

By now, you have certainly seen a lot in media reports about a new virus, coronavirus (COVID-19), that is affecting citizens in some foreign countries and, more recently, in the United States. We have begun preparation for the potential spread of COVID-19 in our community. ABSS has a very close working relationship with the Alamance County Health Department (ACHD) that governs protocols regarding any type of communicable disease like influenza, pertussis (whooping cough), norovirus, etc. Our local ACHD professionals are the authoritative source for protocols needed for all health-related issues. We follow all recommendations and advice they issue regarding student and staff health and safety. We are in close communication with our health department partners, and will share with our staff and parents all recommendations that they may make. As a district, we continue to monitor closely news and updates about the issue at the state, national and international levels. We will continue to share updates with helpful information as long as needed in the event that this virus affects our community.

 

Ciertamente, ya deben haber visto en las noticias mucho acerca del nuevo virus, el coronavirus (COVID-19), Mantenemos una comunicación estrecha con nuestros socios del departamento de salud y compartiremos con nuestro personal y los padres todas las recomendaciones que puedan hacer. Como distrito, continuamos monitoreando de cerca las noticias y actualizaciones sobre el tema a nivel estatal, nacional e internacional.
