Superintendent's Update

Superintendent's Update for January 19, 2022

Dear Parents/Guardians:

On January 6, 2022, Governor Kemp advised school districts that contact tracing is a “best practice” but school districts could consider this an “optional service.” CCPS will continue contact tracing, and parents will be notified if their child is a close contact so they may make decisions that are best for their child and family.

Beginning January 21, 2022, school principals will send text and email alerts to parents/guardians if their child is identified as a close contact. Alerts will be sent to each parent’s and/or guardian’s phone number and their email address on file in Infinite Campus. To ensure that you receive these notifications, please verify your contact information by logging into Parent Portal (see below) and updating your phone number and email contact. Please contact your school if you need assistance.

The principal’s alert will be similar to the following message:

Dear Parent/Guardian: You are receiving this notice because your child was in class today with a COVID positive individual. If you would like to quarantine your child at home for the recommended 5 days, please notify the school nurse at [email protected] If you have any questions, please call the school at 111-111-1111. Thank you, Your Principal.

Elementary students mostly remain in the same classroom with the same students each day, so a classroom-wide message will be sent to elementary school parents. Since secondary students change classes multiple times each day and move throughout the buildings for extracurricular activities, notifications will be sent to individual parents.

Our school nurses and staff are working diligently to contact trace and notify parents; however, there is the possibility of a missed close contact. If you think we inadvertently missed a student, please notify your school nurse or principal. You are welcome to quarantine your child at home and their absences will be excused.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please email or call your child’s principal. I would like to thank our teachers, principals, and school nurses for the incredible job they have done, and continue to do during this pandemic. Your heroic efforts do not go unnoticed. I’d also like to thank our parents for their tremendous support during this challenging time.
