As we enter into the holiday/cold and flu season we are eager to find new ways to provide education and guidance to the students regarding COVID-19. Dr. Ricasa from Bon Secours has graciously agreed to do a COVID-19 educational video series for CHS.
Please understand that a close contact is defined by the CDC as someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period* starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.
As we enter the month of November it is important to recognize our success during this school year, while also remaining focused and disciplined for the days ahead. In-person learning is dependent on maintaining the health of our student body, faculty and staff. Please help us keep our community safe by keeping your children home when ill.
The coronavirus disease pandemic may be stressful for people. Fear and anxiety about a new disease and what could happen can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Coping with stress in a healthy way will make you, the people you care about, and our community stronger.
Students must be Healthy to be Educated and Educated to be Healthy
New to CHS! As we begin 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.
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).
