Public Health will be contacting close contacts today for the cases that were identified in the last 24 hours and associated with our school. Per state law, quarantine is a recommendation, not a requirement for close contacts. With the increase of positive cases at Powell County High School, we are asking that anyone who is exhibiting ANY of the following symptoms to please stay home: fever, nausea, fatigue, headache, and body aches. We will be sending students and staff home who exhibit symptoms of illness.
To All Coaches, Parents, & Students Per Executive Order 13998, masks are required on all public transportation. School and activity busses are considered to be public transportation and so masks must be worn at all times, except while eating, drinking, or experiencing shortness of breath. We ask that coaches and students prepare to follow this requirement. At this time, masks are still optional in the school building and on school grounds, so this executive extends order only to busses. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Please reach out to the school with all questions 406-846-2757
