A. Guo, Editor-in-Chief

From the cancellation of the Gator Gala to what is now six positive tests of COVID-19 from students and staff at Green Level High School, precautionary measures are now being taken more seriously. But it brings up a question, other than social distancing and wearing a mask, what else is there to know and do? 

First and foremost, if a student or a member of a student’s household has tested positive for COVID-19 or been exposed, they must contact Green Level’s COVID Coordinator Darren Williams via email at [email protected].

If you have been diagnosed, exposed, or are experiencing symptoms of COVID, then follow the flow chart below for when you can return to school.
