As we begin a new month we are extremely pleased with the health status of our CHS community. We have seen a major decrease in COVID-19 cases and exposures. Please use this as motivation to remain vigilant in the mitigation strategies that have been implemented to keep our community safe and healthy.
An email will be sent to all families regarding the 2021-2022 health update for the HPV and Meningococcal Conjugate (MenACWY) vaccinations.
Getting ‘Back to Normal’ Is Going to Take All of Our Tools: Get vaccinated, wear a mask, stay 6ft from others and avoid crowds, and wash your hands!
According to the VDH to ensure safety with a household contact quarantine, you must have complete separation from the person in the house with COVID-19 ( this means no contact, no time together in the same room, no sharing of ANY spaces, such as a bathroom, kitchen, or bedroom). If complete separation cannot occur children will have to quarantine for the 10 days of the positive individuals isolation and an additional 14 day quarantine for their exposure. Should a household member test positive for COVID-19 you will be asked by the school nurse to verify correct isolation is occurring.
Students must be Healthy to be Educated and Educated to be Healthy
New for the 2020-2021 school year! We are blessed to have a new health clinic and a full-time registered nurse on duty during school hours. Mrs. Dellinger is available for the support of the well-being of student’s health, the assessments and care for chronic and acute illness, and first aid for school-related injuries. Together, you, your child, and the school nurse can build a relationship to benefit your child.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child for the nurse, please feel free to email or call.
School phone: 757-615-0246
Please be sure to read the COVID-19 Attendance Guide for Parents and Families. (It starts with YOU!)
Each family must fill out medical information pertaining to their child through Magnus Health.
If you have not done so already, please access the Magnus Health Student Medical Record for your child/children by accessing the MEDICAL link under the STUDENT tab in Parents web. This will automatically log you in to the “Magnus Health Portal.”
If your child needs to take medication throughout the school day, parents must complete the Request for Medication Administration form and turn it into the nurse.
This is required for all Over-the-Counter and Prescription medications.
If your child self carries medication such as an Epi-pen or Inhaler please make sure the self carry form is filled out and the nurse and student have a copy.
If your child has Asthma, Allergies, Seizures, or Diabetes please make sure an Action Plan is filled out and the nurse and student have a copy.
