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.

COVID-19 Precautions & Procedures
(summarized from the CHCCS Guidelines)
If a student, staff, or faculty member has any COVID-like symptoms, they should stay home and take a home Covid test or go to a health care provider for a test.
Positive COVID results
Please report any positive COVID-19 results (rapid/antigen or PCR), including a copy of your test results, to Nurse Quinn at email@example.com
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. During that time, you may not attend school, after school activities, or athletic events.
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);
your symptoms must be improving and you're feeling well enough to attend school all day; and
- no vomiting or diarrhea for the previous 24 hours (without medication).
Upon your return to school, please remember to wear a mask for the following five (5) days.
