Drew Mask and COVID-19 Policy

COVID Safety and Testing Update:

Based on the current CDC guidance regarding local COVID-19 Community Levels, we will continue our mask requirement for staff and visitors.  Students are also strongly encouraged to wear masks since we are still in a high community transmission area.  This requirement is based on the most current CDC guidance and information regarding transmission levels for Dekalb and Fulton counties, which can be viewed here.

Typically, high school is the time when young Eagles are maturing and are prepared to fly on their own. Encourage this independent practice. They will still need the watchful eye to guide them in their development and learning. Please do so during breaks and refrain from interrupting live instruction for the benefit of the students and teachers. The slideshow will include some additional ways you can support your learner in the virtual environment.
