Cameron School District - Board Approved: August 10, 2021
Face coverings are optional for all students and staff throughout the school buildings, but are required on school buses as per CDC Order. The District’s insurance carrier has recommended that the District adhere to this CDC Order which states that masks must be worn on all forms of public conveyance (subject to specific exclusions), including school buses.
District staff will continue to encourage distancing of 3 feet or more for students and staff. However, learning groups will be allowed. Students will be advised to avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands, and covering coughs and sneezes with tissue or elbows. Classrooms will continue to be spaced to the best of our ability while maintaining as normal of a classroom setting as possible.
Contact Tracing & Quarantines
COVID-19 is a Category 1 communicable illness per DHS, and according to DHS Chapter 145, we are required to report a known case of COVID-19 to public health immediately. Contact tracing will be completed at the direction of Public Health as necessary. The District will require quarantines of any students or staff that have been placed on quarantine by Public Health.
Per WI State Statute 252.21, students will be sent home if they are experiencing symptoms of a communicable disease. Students should remain at home until they have been symptom free for 24 hours.
Communicating Confirmed COVID-19 Cases
Families of any student(s) identified as being at potential risk of contact of a positive COVID-19 case while at school or a school activity will be sent a form letter stating such.
- All HVAC units will be set to maximize the amount of outside air brought into the buildings.
- District buses will be sanitized once per day.
- Hand sanitizer will continue to be readily available throughout the District.
- Routine daily cleanings will continue throughout all school buildings.
- Supplies will be available for staff to disinfect commonly used spaces, desks and equipment as necessary.
- All classroom doors will be left open throughout the school day and windows when weather allows. This will allow for better air flow within the classroom and will also reduce the need for touching doors frequently.
Students will be reminded about good hygiene habits prior to entering the lunch line. Sanitation stations will also be located in the cafeteria area. Students will also be encouraged to practice physical distancing while in the lunch line and cafeteria.
