Davie County Schools are back to enhanced cleaning practices, with employees doing everything they can to help keep children in the classroom.

But the problem isn’t Covid.

At the first of the month, Superintendent Jeff Wallace told board of education members that three students and no staff members were in quarantine for Covid.

Absences from class, however, had increased, with strains of the flu and other sicknesses making the way through schools, Wallace said.
