New guidance from the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/info-by-product/clinical-considerations.html#phrecs) indicates that individuals who are vaccinated and are a close contact of a case DO NOT need to quarantine granted they meet the following criteria:

  • Are fully vaccinated (i.e., ≥2 weeks following receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose series, or ≥2 weeks following receipt of one dose of a single-dose vaccine)

Contact Sport-Related Quarantine Guidelines

Posted on: December 17, 2020

Parents/Athletes/Guardians,

    The CDC and the local health departments have adapted the new quarantine options, which are listed in this section.

Contact sports have been identified as a high risk for potential spread of COVID-19 and the guidelines recommend all contact sports follow the 14-day quarantine.

Effective immediately, Carlisle Local Schools will be following the 14-day quarantine for ALL contact sport-related exposures. For any questions you can contact the athletic office or the nurse’s office. Thank you.

QUARANTINE TIPS

As there has been some confusion about quarantine return dates and notifications, I want to offer some useful tips to our school family and community to help clarify quarantine questions that have been recently asked.

  • When a student is placed in quarantine, the parents will get a phone call from the school; details will be left on voicemail if no answer.
  • Student is mailed a letter from the district with quarantine dates and return date.
  • Students will have different quarantine dates based on class exposure or extra-curricular activities; attendance also can change quarantine dates.
  • Quarantine dates are based on last exposure with the positive individual.
  • If your student cannot return on their expected return date, you must call the school to notify the office, otherwise those additional dates are unexcused absences. 

Thank you!

Pandemic-Related Procedures for a Healthy School Year

Dear Parents & Guardians:

I hope your summer was healthy and restful. We are excited to be opening our new building this year! With the current pandemic the following information related to health procedures for this year is more critical than ever. Please review with your child and if you have any questions please contact me via email.

Daily at Home Health Checks

  • Check your child’s temperature everyday even if they do not feel sick. Must be
  • Check your child daily for COVID or other illness symptoms; they must stay at home if they have any symptoms.
  • Do not send your child to school after they have been given fever reducing medications.

Important health information related to COVID-19

  • If you have a child test positive for COVID-19 please call the district school nurse to report it and follow the guidance of isolation/quarantine set by the health department (10-14 days).
  • Students must stay home anytime they are sick

Return to school guidelines

  • In order to return to school after illness (COVID or other illnesses) the student must be transported by the parent to the school and report to the nurses’ clinic to be cleared to return to school.

Up to date information

   Please make sure that your child’s teacher and the school office have current emergency contact numbers at all times. We cannot keep students at school with high fevers; have a plan in place in case your child becomes sick at school. This is vital to keeping all illness under control.

Mask wearing

   All students must bring a mask to wear during the school day, please provide extra clean masks in your student’s backpacks. Practicing wearing the mask at home to help students adjust and talk with your students about proper mask wear and hand hygiene.

FROM THE DESK OF CARLISLE DISTRICT SCHOOL NURSE REBECCA BAKER:

The most important health message I can share with you is to "Stay at Home".

I am asking you to stay home and stop all play-dates and social gatherings. If gatherings are needed, be sure to follow recommended health guidelines. Local hospitals have set up command centers outside the hospitals to prepare for the influx of patients. This is very real! 

Yes. We do need to get groceries.  Yes. Services for our community still need to be continued. When you are out for essential reasons, maintain your 6-foot bubble.

The YouTube video "What This Chart Actually Means for COVID-19" does an excellent job explaining why we need to do what we have to do. Please share this video with your friends, families, and community. To view the video, click HERE.

Feeling helpless? This is what each of us can do to help.

Important Education Related to Mask and Glove Use

APRIL 13, 2020

The use of face masks is now recommended by the CDC to stop the mask wearer from spreading germs and not for protecting the mask wearer against germs.

For that reason, you have to safely wear a face mask and not increase your chance of getting infected in the process.

Here are some key points to remember when wearing face masks:
1) Wash your hands before putting a face mask on.
2) Fit the mask snuggly around your nose, mouth and chin.
3) Once the mask is on your face, do NOT touch it. If you touch the mask with your hands you have contaminated the mask.
4) Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before taking off your mask.
5) Take the mask off from behind.
6) If you are using a cloth mask, wash the mask after each use.

Many people are also wearing gloves, but there are correct methods on using gloves for infection control and people are not using those methods. Here's a video on wearing gloves and masks that I thought was good:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xFY3aPF7E4   

Continue washing your hands.

Continue social distancing. Spring weather in Ohio brings great kite flying days, but that wind can also spread the virus farther in crowds.
