Dear Parents and Guardians,
The safety of our students and employees is of great importance to us. The South Pike School District will follow the guidance from the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) and Mississippi Department of Health (MSDH) and put measures in place for the prevention of the spread of the Coronavirus and the protection of our students, staff, and our community. The MDE will provide daily updates to school districts about the coronavirus (COVID-19). All MDE updates will be posted at www.mdek12.org/covid19.
We will increase disinfectant use that is labeled to control and eliminate the Coronavirus in all school facilities. We will also increase our efforts to raise awareness of general precautions to control contagious diseases. This includes but is not limited to education and providing more opportunities for hand washing and sanitizers.
We are encouraging all stakeholders to assist us by taking proactive measures to protect themselves from respiratory illness with everyday preventive actions such as:
Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based had sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
The safety and well-being of our students and staff remain our top priority. Thank you for your assistance and continued support during this time.
Donna Scott, Ph.D. Superintendent
