The South Central high school prom committee has been working diligently to prepare for the 2022 prom, which will take place on June 3rd. In order to create the best prom experience, the committee is looking for sponsorships to help cover various needs for the event. If you or your business are interested in helping sponsor this event, please see the attached letter and donation form linked below. Thank you for your consideration!
The purpose of this letter is to provide the most up-to-date information pertaining to positive case protocols and quarantine requirements for students/staff at South Central. Please carefully review the Indiana State Department of Health guidance using the following link: Indiana K-12 Guidance for Isolation and Quarantine
As a reminder, as of this letter, South Central will continue to make the wearing of masks optional for all individuals. Though masks are optional at South Central, there are a few caveats - primarily when students return from a close contact quarantine or from a positive test. The newest requirements from the CDC, which have been adopted by the Indiana State Department of Health now recommend a 5 day quarantine period for close contacts and positive COVID cases. Asymptomatic individuals may now return to school if they wear a mask on days 6-10. Additionally, please note that masks will still be required while utilizing school bus transportation as this is a Federal Requirement.
In closing, we know that positive cases are currently increasing. Please remember, if you or someone in your home feels ill, please stay home. South Central will continue to work with our students and staff to social distance, but it is important to note that close contact in a mask optional environment is still defined as being within 6 feet of a known positive individual for 15 minutes in a 24 hour period. We certainly feel 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
