COVID Update for November 9 - November 15

KCS Covid Dear KCS Families,

Elementary schools will be sharing progress reports over the next few weeks.

As a reminder for Kannapolis Middle and A. L. Brown High students, for the week of Thanksgiving, Cohort A will report for in-person instruction on Monday, November 23rd, and Cohort B will report for Tuesday, November 24th.

All schools are closed November 25th-November 27th for Thanksgiving break.

For the week of November 9 through November 15, KCS had 4 new confirmed positive cases of COVID-19.  The revised guidance from CHA and DHHS has recommended 14 quarantines related to these cases.

As shared last week, the CDC updated the language for the definition of “close contact” in late October and we expect that will lead to an elevated number of quarantines as we follow this new guidance.

As we continue in the season of thankfulness, please know how thankful we are for you and your support.  Our KCS community is #KCSEssential!

Sincerely,

Chip Buckwell
