Clinic Forms during Virtual Learning

It is still important for the clinic to have medical forms on file regarding specific needs and/or treatments during virtual learning. 

Please refer to the CCSD School Health Services website for forms that will help the clinic provide the best treatment plan and intervention for your student even while learning virtually. All forms can be found at:

Many common questions can also be answered from this same site. 

The clinic is always happy to answer questions, assist with forms, and help provide resources! Please do not hesitate to call or email!

When Do I Stay Home?

Making the decision to come to school or work versus staying at home is an important one, and making an informed decision impacts everyone around you!

Use these guidelines to make the best decision for you as well as those around you in school and/or in the community.  Remember masks, social distancing, and good handwashing are imperative to control the spread of COVID-19 as well as following quarantine and isolation guidelines as recommended by CDC and the PHD. 

 

 

 

 


Prevention is key to staying safe and healthy. Social distancing and use of masks are key in preventing spread! This blog addresses the use and care of mask.

Considerations for Wearing Masks
Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19

Updated July 16, 2020

CDC recommends that people wear masks in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.
Masks are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings.
Masks should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Wear your Mask Correctly:
Wash your hands before putting on your mask
Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
Make sure you can breathe easily
fitting a cloth facemask to your face. The mask should cover from below your chin to above your nose, and be pinched to fit the bridge of your nose snugly.

How to clean your Mask:
Washing machine:
You can include your mask with your regular laundry.
Use regular laundry detergent and the warmest appropriate water setting for the cloth used to make the mask.

Washing by hand:
Prepare a bleach solution by mixing:
5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) household bleach per gallon of room temperature water or
4 teaspoons household bleach per quart of room temperature water
Check the label to see if your bleach is intended for disinfection. Some bleach products, such as those designed for safe use on colored clothing, may not be suitable for disinfection. Ensure the bleach product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser.
Soak the mask in the bleach solution for 5 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly with cool or room temperature water.
