November Department of Public Health Report

The recently released November report from the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) regarding COVID-19 positive cases for students and employees of Camden County Schools indicated a slight increase in the number of student and employee positive cases for the coronavirus. This increase in student/employee cases is modest in comparison to the increase in cases recorded county-wide during the month and is a reminder of the need for continued vigilance in following the proven safety protocols shared by the Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control.

Faculty, staff, and students have continued to work together to reduce the spread of COVID-19 by wearing face coverings, practicing good hygiene, and promoting social distancing whenever possible. We encourage our community to adopt and abide by these same protocols in order to slow and eventually stop the spread of COVID-19 in Camden County, especially during the upcoming Winter Holiday Break.

During the reporting period, Kingsland Elementary and Woodbine Elementary had zero students and employees test positive for Covid-19 and zero quarantines. Crooked River Elementary had zero students and employees test positive for Covid-19 but had 2 employees quarantined. Mary Lee Clark Elementary had zero students and employees test positive for Covid-19 but had 1 employee quarantined. Many of the quarantines occurred because of exposure away from the school environment. School specific information for all schools may be viewed by clicking this link.

The Camden County School System has reported zero clusters during this time period. A cluster is defined as laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 in two or more people (students, teachers, staff) with the earliest symptoms or test dates within 14 days of each other. To be part of a cluster, COVID-19 cases would have to had contact with one another, butwould NOT share a household, and would not be identified as close contacts of each other in another setting outside of school or school-related activities.

CCS Path Forward for PreK-12 Schools

Revised 8-6-20

Over the past several months, we have been working with the Department of Public Health (DPH) and Camden Emergency Management, soliciting feedback through the CCS Path Forward Family Survey and partnering with our teacher and parent led System Steering Committee, to develop a plan for the reopening of our schools. Our goal in developing this plan was to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus on our students, faculty and staff, families, and community while maximizing student development, learning, and growth.

For the 2020-2021 school year, we plan to provide both in-person learning beginning August 3rd and offering a virtual learning option for families who may not yet be ready for students to return to the classroom.

Please take a moment to read the full reopening plans by clicking this link.
