COVID-19 Health and Safety

  • Alachua County Public Schools is committed to providing students with a high-quality education while promoting health and safety within our schools. 
     
    To that end, the district has been working closely with the Alachua County Health Department and the Scientific Medical Advisory Council, which is made up of medical experts from the University of Florida, on strategies and protocols aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19 in our schools and worksites. Links to those strategies/protocols are available on this page. 
     
    Those documents will be updated as needed to reflect new medical guidance, changes in the course of the virus and other information.
     
    This site also includes a COVID-19 Dashboard to keep families, staff and the general public updated on positive cases in our schools. The dashboard is updated whenever new cases are reported.
     
    Families have a critical role to play in preventing the spread of COVID on our campuses and in our community. Students who have symptoms or have had significant exposure to a positive COVID-19 case MUST REMAIN AT HOME to protect them and the health and safety of fellow students and staff. A parent checklist with a list of COVID-19 symptoms and other critical information is also available on this site.
     
    Thank you for doing your part to protect our students and staff!
