We are working with the Lawrence County Health Department to make sure all protocol is being followed and those who have had possible contact are being notified.  Out of an abundance of caution, we advise you to monitor your students' health, follow the CDC guidelines for people who have had close contact, and contact your primary care physician if you develop symptoms.  LCJVSD is continuing to monitor the situation and will provide additional information as needed.

High School Virtual Learning 11/23-11/24

Image
All high school classes will take place virtually on Monday and Tuesday this week, and Thanksgiving break will go on as planned through the rest of the week. Juniors will participate in their virtual learning as usual, and lab instructors will reach out to seniors via email, Google Classroom, or other means to provide instructions on how to participate virtually for their lab assignments for those days. The staff is permitted to conduct virtual learning from their homes; however, the main campus building will be open to them if needed. This change applies only to high school students and staff. The adult programs will continue with their regular schedule.

Contact Tracing at CCTC

One frequent question we receive concerns the notification of individuals who may have been in contact with a student or staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19. To protect the privacy of individuals who have tested positive, we are not permitted to release any information that could publicly identify them. Our COVID return plan follows the specific guidelines created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to operate a school during this time. The CDC defines a contact as: Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated. With the Lawrence County Health Department's cooperation, we immediately begin a case investigation and contact tracing once we are made aware that an individual who was in our building has tested positive.

COVID-19 Safety Update

The safety of our students and staff is always a priority at Collins Career Technical Center. Unfortunately, Lawrence County has recently seen a rise in COVID-19 cases that have affected several county school districts. We felt this would be a good time to praise our students and staff and remind parents of the steps we have been following to contain the virus’s spread. We would also like to take the opportunity to thank the student’s families for their support and patience with the changes we needed to make to help us maintain a safe environment for our students. Finally, we would like to thank our students and staff. We understand that there are many barriers (slow internet, family obligations, academic struggles) that make it challenging to succeed in a virtual learning environment. We feel that frustration, as well. Our teachers continue to adapt to this new teaching style and making the best they can out of this unfortunate situation.
