                CCSD 2021-2022 Public Health Protocols         

  • If your child tests positive for Covid, they must isolate at home for 5 full days from date of test and may return to school on day 6 IF they are without symptoms and must wear a mask while in school for an additional 5 days, regardless of vaccination status.
  • If your student has close contact with a positive person outside of school OR lives with someone who is positive, and your student is not fully vaccinated (2 doses of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or 1 dose of J & J vaccine within the last 6 months), they must isolate at home for 5 days and may return on day 6 IF they are without symptoms and must wear a mask while in school for an additional 5 days.  

Please email Nurse Becky if you have any questions or need to self report for you or your child. This will help her to keep accurate documentation and guide you through the isolation/quarantine protocol.

 Just a few reminders and “healthful” hints from your school nurse:

PLEASE KEEP YOUR CHILDREN AT HOME IF THEY DO NOT FEEL WELL!

BEFORE sending your child to school or on the bus, check your child every day for COVID-symptoms that include:

  • Fever or chills                                        
  • Sore Throat
  • New cough                                              
  • New Loss of taste/ or smell
  • New severe/bad headaches                 
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath, congestion or runny nose, trouble breathing
  • New Diarrhea                                          
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Nausea or vomiting 

If your child has any of these symptoms, please keep them out of school and group activities, such as sports or play groups and contact your child's healthcare provider as soon as possible.  DPH recommends that your child gets tested for COVID-19 if they develop symptoms even if they have been fully vaccinated.

CCSD Nurses use a triage guidance and will call parents/guardian to pick up your student if they fall into the parameters of triage.   Students must be symptom free without the use of of fever reducing medications for 24 hours to return back to school.


Additional Parent Information and CCSD Policies

Please be aware that the clinic does not provide medications for your child.  A parent must bring their own child's medicine to the clinic and complete a permission form in order to give permission for the medication to be given to your child.

  • All prescription medications MUST be brought to the clinic by the parent only; students may not transport any prescription medication.
  • Please check expiration dates on over-the counter medications before bringing to clinic; expired medications will not be accepted.
