• Richards Covid-19 Public Notifications

    Richards School District is working in collaboration with the Howell County Health Department and is following its guidance when positive cases of COVID-19 are reported within the district.

    In an effort to keep our community informed during the 2020-21 school year, the number of all reported cases involving Richards students and staff will be included on here, even if there was no risk of exposure on district property or during a district event. This dashboard will be updated weekly and will not include personally identifiable information.

    When Richards becomes aware of a positive case or the potential for an exposure, those who may have come in contact with that individual will be notified.

    Note: The number of new weekly cases reported on the dashboard is reflective of Richards students and staff only. Not all positive cases include the potential for exposure in Richards school or during a Richards event. Public notification occurs when a potential risk for exposure has been identified in the school setting or during a school event.
