Coronavirus Safety Tips

For the concern of our Dorchester School District Four parents, students, staff and community partners, the District is closely monitoring the Coronavirus and working closely with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as far as guidelines and recommendations. Our main area of concern is for the safety and protection of our students, faculty and staff members. The District is equipped with the necessary sanitizing materials. 

 

The following guidelines will be followed as recommended from DHEC:

 

  • Staying home when sick
  • Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth
  • No hugging or shaking hands 
  • Cough or sneeze into the elbow or use a tissue and discard in the trash 
  • Clean and disinfect classrooms, hallways, office areas and restrooms daily  
  • If a student or staff member becomes ill with flu-like symptoms, go to the school nurse. The nurse will execute standard medical procedures. 
  • Parents are reminded that if your child has a fever, do not send him or her to school. 

 

Dorchester School District Four will continue to update this information as more information becomes available. 

 

Thanks for helping to keep our students and staff safe and healthy.
