CPSD scheduled for spring semester start
January 3, 2022
The spring semester for the Clinton Public School District will begin with students slated to return to all campuses on Tuesday, January 4.
“Parents remain our first line of defense when it comes to keeping our students and campuses healthy, so we are asking them to remain as diligent as they were during the fall semester,” CPSD Superintendent Dr. Andy Schoggin said.
“The CDC’s updated recommendations for isolation and quarantine balance what is known about the spread of the virus and the protection provided by vaccination and booster doses. These updates ensure people can safely continue their daily lives,” information released on the CDC’s website said.
The Clinton Public School District currently has approximately 82 percent of faculty and staff members fully vaccinated.
According to the new guidelines, any student or employee who tests positive will be required to isolate for at least five days, regardless of vaccination status.
If the individual that tested positive has been free from fever and all other COVID-19 symptoms for five days, that individual may return to the school setting.
Dr. Schoggin said the district will continue the same layered approaches towards health and wellness with which the district closed out the fall semester.
“We will continue to monitor students’ temperatures as well as provide hand sanitizer throughout all campuses,” Dr. Schoggin added. “We will continue to have additional custodial personnel to clean and sanitize all high traffic areas on top of continuing social distancing and other continued safety measures.”
Parents are encouraged to keep their student at home if their student feels ill.
Masks will continue to be worn by riders and drivers on all school buses and will remain highly recommended for all faculty, staff, students and visitors inside CPSD buildings.
