Masks & In Person Safety Procedures

In Person Health Services

Should I attend school (Staff and Students)? We are following and will follow WVDE, CDC and KCHD guidelines

COVID Classroom Screening 

Masks/Face Coverings

•Face coverings are required of all staff. Masks and shields are both acceptable.

•Unless medically waived, students grades PreK and above are required to wear face coverings at all times. Masks can be from home. The school will also have masks available.

•Any student who cannot wear a mask or face shield due to a medical condition, including those with respiratory issues that impede breathing, a mental health condition, or disability, and students who would be unable to remove a mask without assistance are not required to wear face coverings.

•Individuals who are communicating or seeking to communicate with someone who is hearing impaired or who has another disability, where the ability to see the mouth is essential to communication, are not required to wear a mask; however, individuals should consider using another type of face covering such as a plastic face shield.

Schools will:

Establish a dedicated space for symptomatic individuals that will not be used for other purposes.
Anyone not employed or enrolled in the specific school will be screened for symptoms upon entrance to the building.
Provide classroom teachers with clear guidelines of when/how to send a student to the health office.
Document screening information for staff/students to aid local health officials in contact tracing.
School Nurses and delegated school staff who provide direct patient care will wear appropriate PPE and perform appropriate hand hygiene.
Once a symptomatic person is removed from the school, implement cleaning and disinfecting procedures per CDC guidelines.
Update emergency contacts for staff/students to facilitate transportation home or to medical care.
Systematically review health records and current health care plans for accommodating students with special health care needs and update as needed to decrease their risk and exposure to COVID-19.
School nurses will be alert for any chronic illnesses or conditions that may exacerbate COVID-19 symptoms while obtaining health histories and reviewing current well-child checks and immunization records.
Notify local health authorities of confirmed COVID-19 cases among staff and students.
Ensure that if a person (visitor, student, and/or employee) with COVID-19 was in the school setting while infectious, school and/or county administrators coordinate with local health authorities to notify staff and families immediately while maintaining compliance with FERPA and all other state and federal laws.
