East Central Elementary School has been moved into Phase Two of the Rome City Schools’ COVID-19 plan. According to an RCS media release issued on Wednesday:

During phase two, all faculty, staff and students on this campus will follow the following protocol:
Phase Two: If one percent of the total school population reports positive COVID-19 cases within a seven-day period, the school will transition to phase two for a minimum of two weeks.
-All faculty, staff and students will be required to wear masks indoors, and on RCS school buses.
-Students will eat ALL meals in the classroom.
-All visitors will be restricted from the school’s campus.
East Central will remain in Phase Two of the plan for a minimum of two weeks. Parents, students, faculty, and staff will be communicated with once East Central can transition back to Phase One of the COVID-19 Plan.
