School nursing protects and promotes student health, facilitates normal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders that bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential.
Please keep Nurse Quinn informed of any major changes regarding your child’s health.

1) CHCCS follows the CDC's "Isolation and Precautions for people with COVID-19" guidelines.
2) Mask Mandate
If a cluster of COVID cases is identified, students, parents, and staff will be notified. In that event, we will follow the Orange County Health Department recommendations for a 10 day mask mandate.
Mask compliance is recommended at school, both inside and outside.
3) COVID-19 Precautions & Procedures
(summarized from the CHCCS Quarantine Guidelines)
If a student, staff, or faculty member has any COVID-like symptoms, they should stay home and get one PCR test from a provider (UNC MyChart, Wake Toxicology, Orange County Health Department, Walgreens, CVS, Duke MyChart, their physician, etc.) or two home rapid/antigen tests. Please report your results to Nurse Quinn at email@example.com.
Positive COVID results
Report any positive COVID-19 results (rapid/antigen or PCR), including a copy of your test results, to Nurse Quinn at firstname.lastname@example.org
You will need to maintain full mask compliance for a minimum of ten (10) days from the date your symptoms began.
You must isolate a minimum of five (5) days from the date your symptoms began.
For example, if your symptoms began February 1, then February 1 is day zero; February 2 is day one, February 6 is day five and your first possible return to school would be February 7. If you have any questions regarding your isolation period, email Nurse Quinn at email@example.com with the date your symptoms began and a copy of your test results.
Prior to returning to the school building, after-school activities, and athletic events:
you must have no fever for the previous 24 hours (without fever-reducing medication/s); and,
your symptoms must be improving and you're feeling well enough to attend school all day.
