Special to Iredell Free News

Spring Break has just completed for Iredell-Statesville Schools with hundreds of students and adults traveling across the country and the world. Out of an abundance of caution due to the risk of COVID-19, I-SS officials have decided to extend Spring Break for all students through March 20.

The district will hold Optional Teacher Workdays on March 16-20. During that week, staff will prepare for a possible prolonged period of remote learning, social distancing strategies, community-based meal delivery for qualified students, and further deep cleaning protocol.

Depending on your travel history, you are asked to consider self-quarantine for a period of 14 days. Please visit www.cdc.gov for a complete list of countries that currently have widespread, ongoing transmission of COVID-19.

As always, the district will communicate directly to our staff, parents, and students via mass notification, on the I-SS Website, and on our social media channels and through our local media outlets. You may view additional updates by visiting www.issnc.org/coronavirus

It is the desire of district administration to keep you informed about the coronavirus. The district has convened a COVID-19 Task Force to meet regularly to discuss this fluid and ever-changing

Should further precautions need to be taken, the district will report them immediately.
