National School Counseling Week 2021, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association, will be celebrated from February 1-5, 2021.  We would like to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within the U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do.  National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.  School counselors are actively engaged in helping students to examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents as well as work in partnership with parents as they encounter the challenges of raising a child in today’s world.  Counselors focus on positive ways to enhance students’ academic, postsecondary and social/emotional development as well as work with teachers and other educators to provide an educational system where students can realize their potential and set healthy, realistic and optimistic aspirations for themselves.  School counselors are certified, experienced educators with a master’s degree in school counseling.  The combination of their training and experience makes them an integral part of the total education program.

 

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.
