Parents/Guardians,  We are working to start Special Olympics Unified Basketball. However, we first need to know how many athletes will participate. Please complete the survey attached. This is crucial.  “PEER PARTNERS” NEEDED: Is your child interested in being a unified partner? Please complete the survey, as well.  Who is eligible: Every person with an intellectual disability who is at least 8 years of age is eligible to participate in Special Olympics. There is no maximum age limitation for participation in Special Olympics.   What is Unified Basketball? Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. In Unified Sports, teams are made up of people of similar age and ability. That makes practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all. Having sport in common is just one more way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away.  https://forms.gle/iQAFp6KbkgvsAssR8
Student Insurance Available for 2022-2023
​An Update from Coordinated School Health:  Our goal for the upcoming year is to address COVID issues as they arrive. Currently, we are not receiving COVID guidance from the State Department of Health for the K-12 setting. Therefore, we will start this school year in a regular manner. We are following CDC recommendation for positive cases and continue to encourage mask wearing, social distancing as best as possible, hand sanitizing, and maintain student cluster seating charts in order to limit the spread of any virus.  ✔ Roane County Schools will no longer contact trace for COVID-19.  ✔ Positive COVID cases will isolate from school for a minimum of 5 days from the positive test date; additionally, it is recommended to wear a mask an additional 5 days upon return, per CDC guidance.  ✔ Documentation from a medical provider, home tests, and school nurse clinic COVID tests will be accepted as proof of a positive case. “Verbal Only” reports of a positive case (example: home COVID test) will be accepted on a one time basis.  ✔ There will be NO quarantines from exposure to a positive case. Parents that report exposures to a positive case may refrain from school attendance but MUST use parent notes in order to be excused, with the reminder that students are only allowed 6 parent notes in a school year.  ✔ Staff may use sick or personal days for COVID related absences.
