Forsyth County Schools Addresses Coronavirus

A recent message to Forsyth County Schools parents asks parents to keep children at home if they recently returned from China, due to the coronavirus.

The letter reads:

FCS Parents/Guardians,

If your child or a member of your family has been to China and recently returned to our community, we request that you wait for the 14-day incubation period (beginning the day of return to the U.S.) to expire before enrolling your child in school or returning to school.

We will not count these absences. Your child will be provided online learning during this period and technology/access if needed.

Please contact your school principal immediately if this applies to your child, even if your child is currently in school.

We do not have a confirmed case of coronavirus in our schools. If this was to occur, we will notify staff and parents/guardians within the school.

Thank you for your continued support in keeping our students and staff safe. More information on the coronavirus is available at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus
