COVID Update September 10, 2021

In the spirit of transparency, the Walton County School District (WCSD) will continue to update our stakeholders with COVID-19 data for the 2021-2022 school year. 

 

We look forward to a time where these numbers read 0%, likewise is our wish for our county, state, and country. We are glad that we are able to navigate through this second year of COVID like we have with the mitigation strategies in place that allow students to be in school, employees at work, and families enjoying some sense of normalcy.

We are pleased to announce a new partnership in our efforts to help make COVID-19 testing more accessible to our students and employees, allowing students a speedy return if quarantined due to possible exposure and families immediate information and results.  Beginning immediately, COVID-19 testing will be offered through Stone Clinical Laboratories in each geographic location of the WCSD every day that school is open.  The tests are conducted by clinically trained personnel who are both vaccinated and tested on a weekly basis.  Those wanting testing need to pre-register at https://forms.office.com/r/RyAf0H6Yqr.  Results are provided within 24 hours of testing.  As always, we want children in safe schools and experiencing educational success – this new partnership ascertains this goal and our moving 4wRd!
