Letter to Parents and Families Regarding COVID-19

March 11, 2020

Dear Parents and Families,

The North Carolina Innovative School District (ISD) continues to monitor the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19). As of March 10, 2020, there were seven confirmed cases in Wake County, North Carolina. While no cases have been confirmed in Robeson County, the District is aware that the situation could change quickly. The ISD along with the school operator, Achievement for All Children, is consulting with the Public Schools of Robeson County, Robeson County Health Department and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services to ensure our students, families and staff are prepared.

The school has a cleaning plan in place to provide regular and routine cleanings of common surfaces throughout the day. High contact areas such as doorknobs, classrooms and cafeteria tables are being given additional attention. Custodial staff is onsite at the school cleaning the building through out the day. The cafeteria staff are utilizing an antimicrobial solution to clean tables before and after meals. Please remind students to wash their hands regularly and not touch their faces. If your child has a fever or feels unwell, please keep them at home.

Safety is our top priority, therefore the following precautions for field trips are in effect until further notice:

  • Any school-sponsored international field trips will not be approved
  • Out-of-state field trips to any location with confirmed cases of the coronavirus are suspended
  • Local field trips to areas not impacted by the coronavirus may continue if they were previously approved by the Superintendent

Any additional district updates will be provided at www.innovativeschooldistrict.org. For more information on COVID-19, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.
