Ensuring all students learn and grow is our collective responsibility.
Back-to-school 2021-2022
Back-to-school 2021-2022
We are happy to see students back in our classrooms this school year. We continue to monitor the health and safety of students and staff and stay up-to-date on the CDC and Licking County Health Department guidelines and information. Below is the current information and guidelines for Heath City Schools:
 
Masks
  • Masks are encouraged but optional for students and staff.
  • The one exception is the school bus. Masks are required on buses per CDC mandate. The CDC mandate information can be accessed here: CDC Public Transportation Mandate Information 
Social Distancing
  • Students will be socially distanced as much as possible from other students, keeping in mind student capacity and classroom arrangement. 
  • Safety procedures can be increased or decreased based on the incidence of spread in the community.
Personal Hygiene
  • Frequent handwashing and hand sanitizing will be encouraged.
  • Sneeze and cough etiquette will be taught and emphasized.
  • Continue to monitor students for symptoms. If your child is sick, please keep them home.
  • Students and staff should bring water bottles to school because we have bottle fillers in all buildings that will be offered because water fountains remain turned off.
Enhanced Ventilation and Cleaning
Heath City Schools has been working to ensure that the air and environment are as safe and clean as possible. Enhanced cleaning and sanitation procedures have been in place since our reopen in August of 2020 and will continue.  All surfaces are cleaned on a daily basis and sanitized on a weekly basis with hospital-grade sanitizer.  
 
Advanced ionization air treatment systems have been installed in HHS and HMS over the summer, which has been shown to decrease the number of virus particles in the air.  Our HVAC systems have been monitored and adjusted to cycle outside air into the environment as frequently as possible, per building.  Finally, all buildings have been tested for radon, and the district is currently working with contractors to install radon mitigation where needed. 

Isolation
If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, they will be required to isolate for 5 days from the date their symptoms started, or if they do not have symptoms, for 5 days from the date of their positive test.

This includes individuals that are vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • If the individual has no symptoms or their symptoms are resolving after 5 days, their isolation period will end, and they can return to normal activities. However, these individuals should wear a mask for 5 additional days.
  • If the individual has a fever after 5 days, they should continue to isolate until their fever resolves. 

Quarantine
Individuals that are exposed to COVID-19 and meet the definition of a close contact should follow the guidance listed below:

These individuals do not need to quarantine:
  •  Individuals who have received a COVID-19 vaccination booster.
  • Individuals who have received both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine within the past 6 months.
  • Individuals who have received a does of Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 within the past 2 months.
  • Individuals who have been medically diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past 90 days.
  • Individuals who wear a mask and are separated by a minimum of 3 feet from an individual with COVID-19.
  • Individuals who are separated by a minimum of 6 feet from an individual with COVID-19. 

These individuals need to quarantine for 5 days from the date of their last exposure to an individual with COVID-19. After their 5-day quarantine period, they should wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.

  • Individuals who are not vaccinated against COVID-19
  • Individuals who have received both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 over 6 months ago and have not received a COVID-19 vaccination booster.
  • Individuals who have received a dose of the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine over 2 months ago and have not received a COVID-19 vaccination booster.
  • Individuals who wear a mask and not separated by a minimum of 3 feet from an individual with COVID-19.
  • Individuals who are not separated by a minimum of 6 feet from an individual with COVID-19. 

If an individual is unable to quarantine, they must wear a mask for 10 days after their symptoms developed.

Please understand that should an increase in COVID-19 cases occur, additional mitigation strategies may be implemented per recommendations by the Licking County Heath Department to help keep students and staff safe. Case data will be monitored at the district, school and grade level by the Licking County Heath Department to pinpoint any transmission that may occur.
