School COVID Case Procedure & Tracking

KCS follows the West Virginia Department of Education's School Recovery & Guidance for COVID-19 in schools. 

COVID-19 Protocols & Guidance were updated in January 2022. Updated guidance can be found at: https://wvde.us/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/School-Recovery-and-Guidance-Document-DEC-2021-v1.pdf. 

Each time there in is a confirmed positive staff or student case in a KCS school, the principal fills out the appropriate form so that our Head Nurse can work with the school on the appropriate procedure. We will first notify the affected classroom or group, as well as the whole school, about the case. If there is an update to the situation, we will still first notify the affected classroom or group, as well as the whole school, first.

To increase transparency, we will also be posting information (school of confirmed positive individual, date of confirmed positive notification, number of confirmed active positive cases at school) about confirmed positive cases in our schools. This page will be updated each afternoon. 

KCS works with the local Kanawha-Charleston Health Department (KCHD) in examining each situation. Individuals who may have been exposed to a positive will be contacted through the contact tracing process. Tracing and quarantine information is provided provided through the School & Recovery Guidance linked above.
