RCBOE Adopts CDC Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention in K-12 Schools. Read more on our site - https://www.roanewvschools.com/article/510735
RGH is offering drive-thru COVID-19 testing on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 1 pm to 5 pm, behind the walk-in clinic. Moderna vaccine will also be offered for 18+.
COVID-19 UPDATE After a very quiet summer - summer school saw zero exposures - COVID-19 is once again on the rise. Eleven new cases this week represents the highest one-week total for Roane County in months. These cases tend to be in younger people, which also is the least vaccinated population. And, of course, younger than 12 years old is not eligible for vaccination - which raises concern with new variants like Delta on the loose and affecting younger people more severely. So to keep schools open and keep kids safe and in classrooms this fall, we need everyone to do their part - get vaccinated if you can and be safe when out in the community either way.
Save the dates for these Back-to-School events: Thurs. 8/12 - Back-to-School Block Party and BOE Meeting at Spencer Middle Mon. 8/16 - Open House at Geary, Spencer Elem., and Walton Tues. 8/17 - Freshmen Orientation at RCHS For more info and times, please contact your school.
