Because of the Winnersville Classic being played last Friday, October 9, VCS officials immediately reached out to South Health District (Georgia Department of Public Health) to determine the timeline of exposure. The Valdosta Wildcats varsity football program has an open week this coming Friday, October 16, therefore the team was not scheduled for regular practice.
The health and wellbeing of our student and staff population is always the top priority in Valdosta City Schools. After extensive and detailed conversations with public health officials, the VHS Varsity Wildcats have not been advised to quarantine, at this time. VCS officials met with the coaches and players and reiterated the COVID-19 screening guidelines and encouraged anyone experiencing any symptoms to immediately notify VHS administration and/or their coach(es). As a reminder everyone should continue to refer to the VCS Daily Health Assessment before coming to school/work daily.
