On-Campus Procedures for Students/Staff

 

Upon Arrival at School

  • Daily face covering and temperature checks will be conducted before students exit their vehicles. Pre–K parents will have their child screened in the east hallway before they drop him/her off.
    • Students with a fever of 100.4 or higher will not be permitted to exit their vehicle and must leave directly with their parent/guardian.

  • Student drivers, as well as bus riders, will be temperature checked upon arrival
    • Students riding buses must wear a face covering and maintain social distancing.

    • Those students with a fever of 100.4º or higher will be expected to drive home or wait in an isolation room in the CCA Clinic until a parent/guardian arrives to pick them up.

    • Student drivers, as well as bus riders, will be temperature checked upon arrival

  • For students to return to campus after displaying symptoms, please refer to the “Daily Home Symptom Screening for Parents” as a guide before your child(ren) may return to campus.

  • Students should plan to arrive on campus early in order to complete the temperature and face-covering check along with the ID badge scanning.

  • After students are checked-in, they are expected to travel directly to their assigned class/space wearing their face coverings and refrain from congregating in groups.
 

Throughout the School Day

  • Students (K-12th Grade) will be required to wear a cloth face covering that fully covers the nose and mouth at all times while on campus

  • Coverings must be appropriate in appearance and messaging; bandanas and coverings with valves are not permitted

  • One exception is when students are seated in class, and are able to adequately socially distance from others, they have the opportunity to wear a face-shield that extends from ear to ear and forehead to shoulders. Face-shields affixed to caps can be worn so long as the cap is appropriate in appearance and messaging

  • Face coverings will be available for purchase at Secondary Reception in the event a student misplaces his/hers; face-shields will not be available for purchase at CCA

 

When a Student/Staff Displays Symptoms on Campus

CCA’s protocols have been developed to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 on our campuses. However, we also have procedures in place to manage individual cases along with other illnesses that commonly occur on campus.

  • All students and/or employees will be required to self-report to the CCA Clinic if they test positive for COVID-19

  • Students and employees who have been in “close contact” with any person with COVID-19 symptoms or who has tested positive for COVID-19 should refer to the “Daily Home Symptom Screening for Parents” procedure

  • If a student or employee becomes ill while on campus, they will be directed to the CCA Clinic where the school nurse will make an assessment

    • If COVID-19 symptoms are present, the nurse, who will be in personal protective equipment (PPE), will accompany the individual to an isolation room until their parent(s) are able to pick them up

    • Upon discovering that an employee or student has tested positive, CCA will contact the Broward County Health Department as required for reporting, contact tracing, and instructions

    • CCA will determine a plan of action for the infected individual and any other individuals who had been in contact with that person will be based on direction from the County Health Department, proximity to and the duration of time that the infected individual spent with other people, and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Florida Department of Health guidelines
 

If your child is in class with another student who contracts COVID

  • Upon discovering that an employee or student has tested positive, CCA will contact the Broward County Health Department as required for reporting, contact tracing, and instructions

  • CCA will determine a plan of action for the infected individual and any other individuals who had been in contact with that person will be based on direction from the County Health Department, proximity to and the duration of time that the infected individual spent with other people, and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Florida Department of Health guidelines

 

What If My Child(ren) Becomes Infected?

In the case your child has COVID-like symptoms, please refer to the “Daily Home Symptom Screening for Parents” policy. In the case your child contracts COVID-19, before returning to campus, he/she must:

  • Seek evaluation by a health care provider AND
    • Have at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared AND at least 24-hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication and improved symptoms
      OR
    • Obtain a negative COVID-19 test
 

Close Contact is defined as:

Being within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes of someone who has COVID-19 
Providing care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19
Direct physical contact with the person (touched, hugged, or kissed them)
Sharing eating or drinking utensils
Directly exposed to respiratory droplets
