This guide presents protocols developed to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

This guide is based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), Cabarrus Health Alliance, and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI).

Our top priority in all decisions is the health, safety, and well-being of our students, employees, and school communities. This document is subject to updates. If and when the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic change, this guidance may also change.

To combat the spread of this virus as a community, the expectation is that all employees, students and families comply with the procedures, protocols, and requirements outlined in this document and in any linked documents and websites. In addition, the CCS community is expected to comply with state and local regulations.

If state or local requirements differ from the guidance provided below, school communities will follow the stricter requirements.

Please check the district’s COVID-19 site regularly for the latest information: www.cabarrus.k12.nc.us/covid-19.
