Safe Return to In-Person Instruction

Safe Return to In-Person Instruction

Appalachian State University continues to make data-driven decisions informed by prevailing national, state, and local public health guidance, ordinances, and restrictions.

Our top priority in all decisions is the health, safety, and well-being of the App State community, which includes the Academy at Middle Fork. As scientific knowledge of the coronavirus continues to evolve, the COVID-19 pandemic changes over time, and government and public health officials issue new orders and guidance, App State will update procedures and plans as needed. The university will follow all state and federal orders, directives of The University of North Carolina System, and will adhere to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local public health in order to ensure the safest possible on-campus environment. The Academy at Middle Fork has returned to in-person instruction for all students.  

  • Face coverings are required indoors for students, staff, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status.  
  • Face coverings are also required on buses.  
  • Social distancing is maintained to the extent possible without disrupting the learning environment.  
  • Students are prompted to wash their hands regularly and use hand sanitizer throughout the school day.  
  • Daily and weekly cleaning and sanitizing measures are in place to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

When a student is ill, exposed to COVID-19, or tests positive for COVID-19, the parent/guardian should notify the child's teacher.  Review the Academy's return to school guidelines for more information
