closure will take place immediately
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – After careful deliberation, and in consultation with the Brevard Department of Health, Brevard Public Schools will close Golfview Elementary’s campus to students for three days as a result of expanded cases of COVID-19 and to prevent further spread of the virus.
Golfview Elementary School is located at 1530 S. Fiske Boulevard in Rockledge.
The closure will take place immediately.
All students currently participating in brick and mortar instruction will be moved to eLearning from home or paper/pencil packets.
Families are being notified of the closure this evening and should not have their child attend school for the remainder of the week.
■ The closure affects all school programming. There will be no bus service or before- and after- school care through Friday (Sept. 4).
■ The district will be providing continuity of feeding for students during the closure. Daily meal packets consisting of one breakfast and one lunch per student can be picked up in the car loop between 10 a.m. – 12 noon, beginning Wednesday, September 2 through Friday, September 4.
■ Essential staff including office, custodial, cafeteria and after care employees will report to work tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 2, with instructional staff to return on Thursday, Sept. 3 to conduct eLearning from their classrooms.
During the closure, a custodial team with support from the Office of Environmental Health and Safety will be conducting a deep cleaning and disinfecting of the school.
School and district staff will continue to monitor the situation to determine if a longer closure period is necessary, but as of right now, the school will return to normal operations on Tuesday, September 8th.
The DOH has notified all families of children who were in close contact with individuals confirmed positive and have requested they quarantine for 14 days.
Students/families who DID NOT receive a letter from the DOH were NOT found to have close interaction with individuals confirmed positive and therefore do not need to quarantine.
Families and staff are being asked to continue to conduct daily temperature scans and monitor their health for any signs of potential illness.
