Good Afternoon, For the week of August 23-27, Calhoun County experienced a significant increase in COVID-19 cases. The school system has more than 200 students in quarantine due to being in close contact with a positive COVID-19 case. We have 4 confirmed COVID-19 employees and several that are quarantined. Pleasant Hill Elementary School will be on remote learning from August 30 to September 9. I want to thank the administration, teachers, and service personnel that spent the weekend preparing for the remote learning and assisting with the contact tracing. This is a massive amount of work that was accomplished. We continue to offer support and whatever assistance is needed to our students and employees. Would you please help us by wearing a mask and socially distancing whenever possible. Thanks, Kelli Whytsell Superintendent, Calhoun County

Good Morning Calhoun County has moved to Orange on the WVDHHR. I am going to mandate masks for all grades starting tomorrow. We have been in school for 5 days and have had to quarantine approximately 50 students. We have had three positive cases non-school related, which caused the quarantine of students. I will be issuing a mask mandate starting on Thursday, August 26, for all students and staff in the county. This includes Arnoldsburg, Pleasant Hill, and Calhoun Middle/High School students and staff regardless of being vaccinated. This mandate will be reevaluated on September 16. The goal is to keep students and staff safe and in school. We cannot do that without masks at this time. We anticipated having to periodically issue a mask mandate. I regret that we have to implement this so soon in the school year, but we can’t keep quarantining large numbers of students and have a successful year. We will co time to offer the testing program and have regular vacations clinics at CMHS. Thanks for your support in helping us keep our students and staff healthy and in school. Kelli

August 23, 2021 Good Afternoon, In an effort to be transparent with the community and also respect the privacy of our employees and students, we want to inform you that Calhoun County Schools has had one student test positive for COVID-19. This is not a school-related exposure. However, additional students are being quarantined due to possible exposure. As soon as we were notified of the positive students, Nurse Trudi started contact tracing and contacting involved students and staff. If you are involved, you will be notified by Nurse Trudi. We are in touch with the MOVHD and will be following the health department's guidance. As a school system, our employees do the COVID-19 screeners and sanitize daily. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families at this time. We are a close school family and will continue to provide whatever assistance we can safely provide to them during this time. Thank you so much for supporting Calhoun County Schools, our students, and the school community. Together we can get through these challenging times by continuing to support each other. Thanks, Kelli Whytsell, Superintendent Calhoun County Schools.
