Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Last Updated: 3/1/2021 6:56 PM

The Clark-Shawnee Local School District follows the guidance and expertise of the Clark County Combined Health District, Ohio Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control to help prevent the spread of communicable diseases in our schools. The district is monitoring updates from these agencies about COVID-19, a respiratory illness​ caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. 

We all play a role in reducing the likelihood of a coronavirus outbreak in our school district community. 

Here's what we're doing at Clark-Shawnee to help prevent the spread of illness:

  • Completing extra sanitation in our classrooms, buses, and high-traffic areas in the building

  • Monitoring attendance rates and illness reports daily

  • Reviewing pandemic safety plan information to ensure we are prepared to respond in the event of an illness

  • Working closely with the Clark County Combined Health District to stay up-to-date and make sure we are following recommendations for the health and safety of our students and staff

Here are some ways your family can help prevent the spread of illness:

  • Wash your hands regularly, especially after using the restroom and before preparing or consuming food. Using soap and hot water, wash for about 20 seconds. Be sure to also wash fingertips and between your fingers.

  • Avoid coughing or sneezing into your hands or in the air. Always try to cough or sneeze into a tissue, and then throw the tissue away. If you don’t have a tissue, cough/sneeze into your arm.

  • As much as you can, avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose.

  • If children are feeling sick, please keep them home from school. Allow them some time to feel better so that they do not risk infecting others.
