Sent on behalf of Vice President for Finance and Operations, Mr. Brock Heron:
 
Dear GSSM community,
 
In my email to you earlier today, I stated that no students had close contact with two employees that had tested positive for COVID-19. I have since found out that four students may have had close contact with the employees over this past weekend. As a precaution, we are sending these students to our local testing site for a rapid test this evening and the parents for each of these students will be contacted by our staff.

I regret the information I sent previously may have been premature but we received this new information late this afternoon. If you have any questions, please contact me at bheron@gssm.k12.sc.us or GSSM Human Resources at abrumley@gssm.k12.sc.us.

Sincerely,
 
Mr. Brock Heron
Vice President for Finance and Operations
