SARASOTA COUNTY, March 11, 2020, 7:00 PM – Please note, as of this time of this message, virtually all new cases of COVID-19 in Florida are travel-related. Many families are planning to travel during spring break. With the rapid spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) around the world, including the United States, we wanted to provide information that may be helpful for your travel decision-making. The health and safety of all our students and staff is our district’s highest priority. We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus situation in Florida, and our local Sarasota community. We are also working closely with our local Department of Health to ensure we have the most current information and recommendations to keep our community healthy.
If you are planning to travel during spring break, we encourage you to carefully review the travel advice on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) web page at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html. This information is updated frequently and will contain the most current information about travel precautions. However, please understand that this is a rapidly evolving situation so recommendations can change daily.
**This is an important personal decision whether or not to travel, but should you do so, you must follow the CDC advisories. As such, should you choose to travel, please plan now for any possible impact on your family. While families are enjoying their time off, our custodial teams will continue deep cleaning and disinfecting all schools.
We wish all our teachers, staff, students, parents & families a safe and restful Spring Break!
