    The term “homeless children and youth”— means individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence…; and includes:

    Children and youths who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; or are abandoned in hospitals

    Children and youths who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings

    Children and youths who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings

    Migratory children…who qualify as homeless for the purposes of this subtitle because the children are living in circumstances described in clauses (i) through (iii).

    SPS will make determinations on a case-by-case basis, considering what is known about each individual child’s or youth’s circumstances.

    1. The school district is closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus and is making the necessary preparations in case the COVID-19 becomes more prevalent in our community. For now, there have been no indications of a coronavirus outbreak, but that could change as time goes on.

    2. We all play a role in reducing the likelihood of a coronavirus outbreak in our schools' community. We encourage everyone to practice good habits, including:

    --Wash your hands regularly, especially after using the restroom and before preparing or consuming food. Wash for 20 seconds, using soap and hot water. Be sure to also wash your fingertips.

    --Avoid coughing or sneezing into your hands or in the air. Always try to cough or sneeze into a tissue, and then throw the tissue away. If you don’t have a tissue, cough/sneeze into your arm.

    --As much as you can, avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.

    --If children are feeling sick, please keep them home from school. Allow them some time to feel better so that they do not risk infecting others.

    3. We will continue to communicate with you in the days and weeks to come. It is possible that we may need to cancel classes if it appears the coronavirus has affected our community in a significant way.

    4. For comparative purposes.  As of March 4, there were 127 cases of flu in Richland County with one death; at the national level there were about 322,010 cases of the flu with 22,691 deaths. Those statistics compare to 127,863 cases of coronavirus worldwide with 4,719 deaths (68,310 recovered), and in the United States, 1,323 coronavirus cases with 38 deaths.

    5. Influenza and coronavirus are serious health issues that dictate vigilance in personal hygiene habits and abiding by health alerts and recommendations from our local health professionals.
