As of Monday, one student in Davie County Schools had Covid. A month earlier, that number was 36.

Davie Board of Education members eased restrictions on students further at their meeting earlier this month. Masks are now optional not only in schools, but on buses.

Schools Superintendent Jeff Wallace said he is proud of how the situation has been handled in the system – keeping students at the forefront when making all decisions.

“I commend you all for your leadership, your courage,” he told board members. “What we’ve been through for the past two years … to the staff, our children, our parents … I thank you very much.”

The Covid numbers in Davie increased slightly, going from 22 on March 14 to 29 on March 21.
