FROM STAFF REPORTS

Iredell-Statesville Schools officials are confident that COVID-19 isn’t being spread in the district’s schools.

The district reported only four cases of secondary spread in schools during the week of January 8-14.

But that doesn’t mean staffing and instruction have not been significantly impacted by COVID-19.

Students and staff at 23 district schools and the I-SS facilities building were notified of potential exposure during that week.

While a total of 17 staff members and 26 students reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus, some 734 students were quarantined or isolated due to possible exposure — along with 121 staff members.

Here’s the district’s COVID-19 dashboard for last week:

  1. How can they possibly make this statement? They have no tracing and are saying this so parents will keep their students in school even though this is the worst time possible for spreading to occur. What a self-serving group.
