Back-to-school 2021-2022
We are looking forward to seeing students in our classrooms in a few weeks. We know you all have questions about what this year will look like for students and staff with the ever-changing guidance from multiple agencies. Here’s what you can expect for the start of school at Heath.
  • 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. 

If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, they will be required to isolate for 10 days from the date their symptoms started, or if they do not have symptoms, for 10 days from the date of their positive test. This includes individuals that are vaccinated against COVID-19. An individual cannot test out of isolation earlier than 10 days. 

The following individuals are required to quarantine for a period of 10 days from the date of their last exposure to an individual with COVID-19:
  • Individuals that are not fully vaccinated and are not consistently wearing a mask that are within 6 feet of an individual that tests positive for COVID-19 for more than 15 cumulative minutes in a 24-hour period.
The following individuals are not required to quarantine if they are identified as a close contact of an individual with COVID-19:
  • Individuals that are fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated is defined as having two doses of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine or one dose of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, and it has been at least 14 days since the last dose of the vaccine was administered.
  • Individuals that maintain at least 6 feet of distance from an individual with COVID-19, or at least 3 feet of distance during lunch.
  • Individuals that have been within 6 feet of an individual with COVID-19 for less than 15 cumulative minutes in a 24-hour period.
  • Individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19 through a viral test (antigen or PCR) within 90 days of their exposure to an individual with COVID-19.
