A message from Superintendent Mason:
Due to surging COVID cases in Charlotte County and the fact that several of our school employees have been required to quarantine, Charlotte County Public Schools will begin the second semester in a fully-remote manner on January 6th. The current plan is for in-person hybrid instruction to resume on Tuesday, January 19th. School staff will return to work on January 4th and will be available to parents by phone or email on that date. I am sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause, but we need to do our best to ensure the safety of our students and staff during these difficult times. I encourage everyone to socially distance, wear their masks, and follow CDC guidance so that we can get our students physically back in school as soon as possible.

Meals will be available for pick-up at any CCPS school kitchen from 8:30-4:00 on January 7th, January 12th & January 14th.

Our current mask policy requires students and staff to wear face coverings in our schools and classrooms whenever social distancing cannot be maintained. On October 21st, CCPS received guidance from Piedmont Health District officials recommending that students and staff wear face coverings in the classroom even when social distancing can be maintained. As a result, your child will be required to wear face coverings more frequently in his or her classroom. The intent of this change is to make school an even safer place for our students and staff as we adjust to in-person instruction during this pandemic. Thank you for your understanding concerning this procedural change.

 

When Your Child Is Sick  

Sick

Due to continuing concerns with COVID 19 spreading so rapidly in our county, Charlotte County Public School staff may ask that you keep your child home for a longer period of time than usual.  If your child has a fever, cough, cold symptoms or any symptoms that can be related to the COVID 19 virus, we may ask that you keep your child home for 10 days or more, depending on symptoms.  If at the end of 10 days your child still has symptoms, you must continue to keep your child home until he/she is symptom-free for 3 days/72 hours (that’s symptom-free without the help of medications).

 If you feel your child’s symptoms are related to allergies or some other alternative diagnosis, you should have your child evaluated by their medical doctor.  If the medical doctor can attribute your child’s symptoms to an alternative diagnosis or if your child has a negative Covid-19 test, your child’s time out of school could be lessened with written documentation of this diagnosis.   Even with an alternative diagnosis or negative Covid-19 test, your child must be symptom-free (no fever, no cough, etc., without the help of medication) for 3 days/72 hours, BEFORE returning to school. Please do not hesitate to call your school nurse for questions or concerns. 

Thank you for helping us slow the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases by following this protocol.   


 This is a reminder that the wireless hot spots are set up at each elementary school and at the School Board Office parking lots. The network is open twenty-four hours, seven days a week, and is intended for students and the community to use until further notice.
