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.
1) CHCCS COVID Quarantine 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 a PCR test from a provider (UNC MyChart, Wake Toxicology, Orange County Health Department, Walgreens, CVS, Duke MyChart, their physician, etc.).
Positive COVID results
Report any positive COVID-19 results (rapid/antigen, PCR), including a copy of your test results, to Nurse Quinn at email@example.com
**CHCCS cannot accept negative home or rapid/antigen tests.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
