Career Path High COVID-19 Protocol Summary
We are dedicated to providing a safe environment for our students, staff, and families. Below is a summary of our protocols for the 2021-22 School Year.
COVID-19 VACCINATION: Vaccination is not a requirement to enroll in school or participate in school activities. To help ensure a safe, in-person learning and social environment, the Davis County Health Department (DCHD)strongly recommends that everyone eligible (currently people 12 years and older) be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before the school year begins. Parents should talk to their health care provider when making decisions about vaccinating eligible students.
FACE COVERINGS: Face coverings are not mandatory. Families will need to make individual decisions about when and where to have students wear face coverings. We ask that everyone in our school community respect the individual decisions that are made by families. Please know that most health officials encourage wearing face coverings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The DCHD, in alignment with the Utah Department of Health, also strongly recommends that everyone—vaccinated or not—wear a face mask when indoors in public, including in school.
COVID-19 TESTING: Testing will not be required in most circumstances. According to state law, testing will only be required if a school has more than 30 positive COVID 19 cases. If this happens, students must be tested to remain at the school for their learning and other school activities – unless they have been fully vaccinated or have had a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the previous 90 days.
FEEL SICK, STAY HOME: Students who have COVID-like symptoms should stay home from school. Having symptomatic individuals stay home will significantly reduce the possibility of having to implement “test-to-stay.” Additionally, anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 will not be permitted at school or any school activities during their isolation period – regardless of vaccination status.
QUARANTINE: Quarantine decisions will be made by the Health Department. Parents/guardians will be contacted if in the event of an exposure at school. Based on CDC recommendation, Utah has updated their quarantine guidelines. These are available to view by clicking HERE.
REMOTE LEARNING: Students who are exposed to COVID-19 and choose to remain at home during their quarantine period will be asked to contact their regular classroom teacher(s) so they can continue their learning remotely. Students who test positive for COVID-19 will also be asked to work with their classroom teacher(s) to continue their learning remotely.
SANITATION AND HYGIENE: Schools will continue to implement best practices with cleaning, physical distancing, and other actions designed to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
- Stay home when sick or when waiting for COVID-19 test results
- Masks are a personal choice, but may prevent sickness and quarantine
- Advocate for distancing when possible
- Remember good hygiene and sanitation
- Talk to your health care provider about vaccinating eligible students
CPH will work with the Utah Department of Health COVID-19 mobile testing team to provide testing in the event of a test to stay situation. We will also update this webpage with public testing opportunities in the school area.
CPH will continue to work with our local health officials to monitor COVID-19 case counts and will keep you informed of any adjustments to these guidelines.
