Home News Hoke High moves to online instruction temporarily

Hoke County Schools posted on its Facebook page a notice that Hoke High School is moving to online instruction for 11 days, after two staff members tested positive for COVID-19. The statement in its entirety:
“Hoke County High School will temporarily move all of its students to online instruction (September 17-September 28) as a precaution after two Hoke County High School staff members tested positive for COVID-19. These two cases are isolated to Hoke County High School and have not impacted any other schools in the district. Hoke County Schools’ district leaders have been in contact with the Hoke County Health Department and are following all guidelines and recommendations. While we believe there was minimal contact between the two staff members who tested positive and others in the school, we feel it is in the best interest of our students, staff, and community to err on the side of caution and pause face-to-face instruction at Hoke High. For the next 11 days, Hoke County High School will be closed for all students and staff, and deep cleaning will be completed. Hoke County High School will operate on a remote learning schedule during this time. Attendance and instruction will continue. Students should report to their classes at their scheduled time to ensure they are receiving online instruction and keeping up with their assignments. Students will return to school on September 28, which will be an A day. Students should continue to check their morning notes for updates. It is critical that we continue practicing the three w’s: wash your hands, wear a face covering, and wait six feet apart. We would like to thank our parents for continuing to work with us to keep all of our students and staff safe, this includes keeping students home if they are sick and letting school leaders know if you have concerns or questions. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to do all we can to educate our students while protecting their health and well-being.”
As of Tuesday, the Hoke Health Department reported no other cases in Hoke schools.
