The physical, intellectual, spiritual, and social-emotional well-being of our students, families, and employees is of the utmost importance. To remain face-to-face on campus all year, our community must prioritize and implement health precautions designed to limit the spread of COVID-19. The most important aspect of community health is for students and employees to stay home when sick.
In consultation with guidance from the CDC as well as local and state health and government agencies, we are asking the CCS community to support and participate in the following health precautions.
Complete daily health screenings through Ascend and staying home when instructed to do so
Securing a release from a qualified medical professional to return to school
Maintaining 6 feet of physical distancing wherever possible
Wearing a mask indoors even when 6 feet of physical distancing is possible
** Student Health Information for the 2020-2021 school year can be found on the Roadmap to Return web page by clicking the button below.
Medical forms must be resubmitted for every student at the beginning of each school year. All medical forms are completed on the online database, Magnus Health, available to parents on the MyCCS parent portal.
When a student becomes ill or is injured at school, parents are contacted depending on the severity of symptoms.
In an effort to control the spread of infection, parents are strongly encouraged to keep their student home if he or she is sick. A student may return to school once he or she is fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications. A fever is considered 100.0 degrees or higher.
If a student is an athlete, in order to participate in athletic games or practices, the student must be present at school and attending classes by 11:00 AM.
All new students must have a Tennessee Immunization form submitted to Magnus by July 15. Any student missing the required immunizations and/or form will not be allowed to start classes until the form is uploaded to Magnus. All PreK, Kindergarten, and 7th grade students require an updated immunization form before starting school. These forms should be uploaded to Magnus.
For any student taking medication of any type during the school day (including over-the-counter medication), state policy requires that the school nurse must have a Medication Administration Form on file. Medications for Lower School students must be brought to the Lower School Office by a parent. For Middle and High School, as long as a Medication Administration Form is on file, students may keep medications with them in a backpack or purse. All medications must be in the original container with the student’s name clearly marked. Any medication must be supplied by the parent.
