First Baptist School's ultimate goal is to be able to keep our school open and to keep everyone safe while doing so. We are extremely grateful for the open communication you all have had with us, and we will keep working together to make a safe and caring environment for the students, faculty and staff.  First Baptist will always be as transparent as we can in terms of COVID-19 cases. We take HIPPA and FERPA guidelines very seriously. We also follow DHEC and CDC guidelines and have a DHEC liaison assigned to our school that provides extra assistance with the ever changing climate of this pandemic. If we have a positive case on campus, the following will occur:

  1. School admin, school nurse, and DHEC liaison will immediately begin contact tracing for close contacts.

  2. The school will send an email to all close contacts with quarantine protocols. Administration and nurse will be available to speak by phone if needed.

  3. DHEC will also call close contacts to follow up and give more guidance.

  4. The school will follow up with the families quarantining to check in for symptoms and to help with any questions or concerns.


*Individuals who did not have close contact will not be reached out to separately but can check the tracker for any updates. Positive student and staff cases will be posted by 5:00 pm each day, except on weekends. If there is nothing to be added, there will be no change to the tracker. If you were not contacted by the school, you did not have close contact with the positive case. However, you should continue to check for symptoms, wear a mask, and practice social distancing on a daily basis.

First Baptist School is committed to the safe return of students and staff this fall, and we place health and safety as a top priority following recommendations from local, state, and national health experts. We will remain flexible and as health and medical conditions or state and federal mandates change, we will adjust accordingly.


We will closely monitor numbers and trends in our community. One of the most effective measures against the transmission of any virus is to stay home if you are sick or if there has been a potential exposure.


Please contact your campus nurse if you have any questions or concerns.
