Request for Continued Communication Regarding COVID Reporting

HCPS Health Services will now take on the role of the contact tracer for all of our students and staff.  We will recommend quarantines based on current state public health guidelines. While we cannot mandate or enforce quarantine times, we will adhere to those standards within our buildings.

Communication regarding quarantine times will now come from HCPS health services including when a student or staff member may return to in-person learning or work, and again will be based on current public health guidelines.

What you can do to help:

Communicate - COVID-19 is a reportable disease, therefore it is not a HIPPA violation to share COVID information with a reporting agency (which includes HCPS health services)

Communicate – Parents must call the health services team member at their respective school with information regarding COVID positive cases or exposures that would impact our schools. The HCPS health services team knows what information we need to collect to facilitate the best response.

Communicate – HCPS Employees should continue to notify their supervisor and Melissa Jeffries if you become ill, have close contact with a COVID positive individual, have a household member that tests positive for COVID, or have taken a  COVID test, and the ensuing result (positive or negative).

We want to do the very best we can to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff!  Even though we are currently not able to conduct in-person learning, it is just as imperative now that we continue to track and monitor cases amongst our students and staff. HCPS appreciates all of your help to do this!

If you have questions regarding our health services policies, please contact Health Services Director Melissa Jeffries at 845-8621 or
