Updated COVID Guidelines (February 21, 2022)

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The purpose of this letter is to provide the most up-to-date information pertaining to COVID-19 protocols and quarantine requirements for students/staff at South Central. As you may know, the Indiana State Department of Health is recommending that schools no longer contact trace. Please find the two pages of the presentation that specifically speak to that point as well as the full informational packet from the IDOH at the following link: Indiana K-12 Guidance for Isolation and Quarantine

Therefore, effective Tuesday, February 22, 2022, South Central will no longer contact trace student or staff positive cases. South Central will remain a mask optional environment with the exception of school buses where the federal requirement is still active. As a reminder, if you feel ill, please stay home. If you are an individual that tests positive for COVID-19, you are still required to quarantine for 5 days and must wear a mask upon returning on days 6-10. Please note that your student will not be provided with a certified absence unless they receive a positive test result from a physician or COVID testing site (home tests will not be accepted for certified absences). 

In closing, we are pleased to bring this information to you as many of our student absences were a result of contact tracing with no infection occurring. This decision means that students and staff will be able to remain in school. We believe that the latest recommendations are getting us closer to normalcy, but we'll certainly need everyone's assistance to continue to operate South Central as safely as possible. Thank you for your continued support and for choosing South Central for your child's education.


Dr. Theodore Stevens, Superintendent
