Walton County School District COVID-19 Mitigation Strategies for the 2021-2022 School Year

  1. If a person is sick (students, teachers, staff, and visitors), they should stay home.
  2. Face covering is optional for all, including the bus.
  3. Hand sanitizer is available at various areas inside the school.
  4. Social distancing from others is encouraged as much as possible.
  5. Signs will be displayed to remind those in schools about social distancing, as well as the use of hand sanitizer, washing of hands, and face coverings.
  6. Cleaning and disinfecting school facilities/buses which are occupied by students will be done daily.
  7. Adequate mitigation supplies are on hand at all schools/facilities (hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, masks, etc.).
  8. COVID-19 vaccination is optional for all students and employees.
  9. COVID-19 contact tracing is occurring in all schools/facilities (2021-2022 WCSD Decision Tree for employees and students).

10. At this time non-essential visitors and volunteers are not allowed to enter schools. This mitigation strategy will be revisited in the next few weeks.

*Please keep in mind that although COVID positive cases may represent a student or staff member within the WCSD, it does not necessarily indicate that the virus originated within the WCSD.  It is also important to note that a portion of the positive cases involve individuals who may have never entered the school setting while sick due to proper quarantining. 

 

 

12:30 PM Heightened Security Measures Lifted

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

As of 12:00 pm, Heightened Security was lifted from our campus and we will resume normal operation. Our Guradian, Mr. Ellis will remain on campus for extra security, along with our SRD.

 

During Heightened Security, the VRB staff ensures the safety of students on campus by making sure all windows are covered, limit movement between classrooms, extra monitoring if travel between buildings is needed, and close communication with local authorities. 

 

The VRB teachers and staff did a wonderful job implementing procedures for Heightened Security with no loss of instruction time. We appreciate the response of the Walton County Sherriff Department and all they do to keep our community safe. 

11:00 AM Heightened Security Measures in Place

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 First and foremost, our campus is secure and all students are safe.  At approximately 9:45 am, VRB went on heightened security after receiving information from the Walton County Sherriff's Department regarding police activity in our area.  Our SRO is in close contact with the Sherriff's department and closely monitoring the situation.  

 Please refer to the Walton County Sherriff's Department website for updates and we will also update you with any changes on our campus.

  • No longer on Zoom!

    Everyone must bring photo ID and social distance.  All tables will be sanitized before lunch.

    The meeting will last no longer than 45 minutes so staff can prepare for student lunch times.

    If there are any questions or concerns, PTO officers will be available.

    We want to keep the meetings in person for the remainder of the school year, so please follow school COVID rules.

To receive notifications about bus changes and/or delays,
