Pickens County Schools

student growth and success and must
also prioritize the health and safety of
our students, staff, and greater
community. We are eager to see
students back in our halls, but we are

that remain ahead.

Pickens County Schools has developed
a TENTATIVE plan that includes three
scenarios for returning to school for
2020-21.

 Preferred Plan

 Possible Plan

 Least Ideal Plan

These plans were created using the
recommendations from the Georgia
Department of Education’s “Georgia’s
Path to Recovery for K-12 Schools”.
Pickens County Schools will determine
the plan based on the specific level of
spread in Pickens County as
determined by the Department of
Public Health.

…………………………………………………………….
It is our responsibility as an academic
institution to provide a reliable and
effective learning experience for our
students each year while balancing the
implications of the evolving COVID-19
pandemic. Additional preventative
measures will be implemented in
schools to mitigate the spread of the
virus.
More information and guidance will
be shared in the coming weeks.

Pickens Schools employee tests positive for COVID-19

Community, News
Pickens County Schools

Pickens County School District was notified today that an employee of the district received a positive
diagnosis for COVID-19. The employee participated in a voluntary testing opportunity at a drive-thru
testing site last week even though they had no symptoms at the time of the test nor do they have any
symptoms currently.

The employee who tested positive works for the transportation department and drove the bus to Tate
Elementary School to assist with distributing meals. The individual was wearing a mask and gloves per
our district protocol while distributing food to families.

This individual also attended graduation as a guest last Wednesday and school administration has
reached out to families who were present at similar times. Due to procedures and protocols in place,
health officials do not feel there are any immediate health concerns for guests.

Out of an abundance of caution and in adherence with CDC and the Department of Public Health (DPH)
guidelines, employees who were in direct contact for longer than 10 minutes are quarantining
themselves and monitoring for symptoms.

The district will remain transparent with our families and we will continue to take necessary precautions
in order to maintain the health and safety of our students, their families, and our staff. If you have
questions or concerns about your health, contact your medical provider or the local health department.
Also, the DPH COVID-19 hotline number is (844) 442-2681.

School Nurse Day

Dragon's Corner

On May 6, 2020, we will recognize our school nurses by celebrating National School Nurse Day
to foster a better understanding of the role of school nurses have in the educational setting.
The theme this year is School Nurses: Supporting Students in Times of Crisis.

This year has been more challenging for everyone in the world with the COVID-19 global
pandemic. Pickens County School District (PCSD) has a licensed school nurse in every building
and whether they are working in the school clinic or working virtually, they take on a variety of
roles, duties, and responsibilities with the intent to promote academic and lifelong achievement.
For many children, the school nurse may be the only health professional they have access to
regularly. This becomes even more important as the prevalence of chronic social, emotional,
and other health problems keep increasing. Their role is essential for all students — in public
health, in care coordination, in organizing access to resources to help address the social
determinants of health, and in policy development, particularly to support the health and
education of our students during this pandemic.

Thank you, Pickens County School District nurses, for leading health promotion and disease
prevention in our school community. You have helped decrease fears and promote the
prevention of COVID-19, the flu, and other illnesses. You continue to educate and support
students, parents, and school staff virtually. You are volunteering with food distribution,
providing facial coverings, assisting the Department of Public Health with contact tracing, and
modifying end-of-year processes considering the pandemic.

Our elected officials and school leaders have invested in programs and services that improve
the health and well-being outcomes of all children. The school nurses could not do the job they
do without the support and investment of community stakeholders including PCSD Board of
Education members, district and school leaders, and many others. “Thank You” to everyone
who supports school nurses ensuring our children have a successful, productive, and healthy
future.
