School District keeps COVID restrictions in place

Escambia County (FL) Schools to Continue COVID Restrictions

Restrictions Will Be Revisited in January

During the November 12, 2020 School Board of Escambia County’s Special Workshop, incoming Superintendent Dr. Timothy Smith announced the district’s plans to continue observing the current COVID-19 safety restrictions.  The district will re-evaluate conditions after returning from break in January 2021.

“The district planned to review restrictions concerning visitors, volunteers and mentors on Nov. 13,” stated Superintendent Smith. “As much as we look forward to allowing parents and volunteers back on campus, we have to look at the data.  That data indicates we should continue following the restrictions currently in place.”

District leadership discussed the total number of students and staff members affected by the pandemic as of September 30, October 30, and November 12, 2020.  Those affected include individuals who are positive, exposed and symptomatic.

“We are aware of the COVID data which indicates an increase in our state over the last two-three weeks. Therefore, we will reevaluate in January, 2021 after reviewing the data on current patterns and trends,” added Superintendent Smith.
