Nurse's Station

Parents, if your child is not feeling well, please keep them home. If you are unsure about sending them to school, please contact me. Please make sure all phone numbers are up to date for your child, so if needed we can contact you. If your child should need to take medication at school, please contact me. Prescribed medication must have a prescription label on it, and be within date. Medication forms must be completed in order for your child to receive medication at school. Please never send medication in with your child, or in your child's backpack for safety reasons.

With the start of any school year, there is always a lot of sickness that spreads. With that being said, just want to give all of you a few guidelines to follow if your child is sick. Please keep them home if they have a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea until they are symptom free for 24 hours. The guidelines for Covid have changed this year. So, I wanted to update you all on the Catoosa County Public Schools policies regarding Covid.

*CCPS will not require masks for any students or staff on campus or buses. *CCPS employees will use their personal sick days for any illness absence including an absence r/t Covid.
*CCPS will not require Covid testing for students or staff. *CCPS will not require anyone who has been exposed to a Covid positive person to quarantine.

The current GA-DPH/CDC recommendations for a person who tests positive for Covid are:

Remain at home for 5 days after the onset of symptoms. Follow the fever free for 24 hrs (w/out use of OTC fever reducing meds) prior to returning.

The 1st day symptoms begin is considered day ZERO.

School nurses are NOT tracking Covid positive students or staff.

School nurses do not need to see any test results of students or staff .

If things change in our community r/t Covid we will continue to follow guidance from the GA-DPH.

If your child should need to take medication at school, please contact me. Prescribed medication must have a prescription label on it, and be within date. Medication forms must be completed in order for your child to receive medication at school. Please never send medication in with your child, or in your child's backpack for safety reasons. 

If you have any questions, or concerns please call me at 706-866-1521.
