Welcoming students back to the classrooms in person and surrounding them with caring educators and needed support is the best way to help them grow academically and re-engage in the learning and social environments that are critical to their development.
In partnership with the Delaware Division of Public Health and Quidel, Red Clay schools are offering COVID-19 testing this fall. Learn more and register.
September 28, 2021
Governor John Carney, the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH), and the Delaware Department of Education (DOE) announced on September 28 that educators, school staff, contractors, and volunteers who work in K-12 public and private schools must get vaccinated for COVID-19 or undergo weekly testing. The requirement, which will be formally issued by emergency regulation, takes effect November 1.
We are working with our respective employee groups to ensure we are in compliance with the latest order issued by Governor Carney. As we continue to support and maintain safe school environments, this will be another step in mitigating the impact of COVID-19 in Red Clay schools.
Please stay tuned for updates and more details as we work to ensure compliance with the latest order.
