MEDIA RELEASE

STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH ISSUES EMERGENCY RULE 64DER21-15

Protocols for Controlling COVID-19 in School Settings

On Wednesday, September 22nd, Florida State Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo issued Emergency Rule 64DER21-15 which modified quarantine requirements for contact-traced students in school districts throughout Florida. The rule now gives parents the ability to keep their unvaccinated child in school if they are known to be close contacts to a positive COVID-19 case as long as they remain asymptomatic. Previously, unvaccinated students who were close contacts to a positive COVID-19 case were required by the Department of Health to quarantine for up to seven days regardless of whether or not they had symptoms. (NOTE: Vaccinated students who were identified as close contacts have always been permitted to attend school as long as they had no symptoms.)

Effective immediately, school districts across Florida will be implementing this Emergency Rule. In Okaloosa County, schools are contacting parents to notify them of the option to allow their contact-traced student to attend school as long as they are well. The Emergency Rule requires districts to allow students to attend without restriction or disparate treatment.

Superintendent Marcus Chambers said the District will be keeping all current safety protocols in place during this transition and will evaluate them periodically. “Students will continue to be encouraged to wear masks when social distancing cannot be maintained, and we will follow all of our existing safety protocols. Those haven’t changed.”

Chambers noted an additional safety measure in response to the Emergency Rule. “We have added a layer of safety to this Emergency Rule by having schools conduct wellness checks on all close contacts each morning to ensure they continue to be asymptomatic.” The District also asks that parents continue to do wellness checks at home and keep their child home if they are not well.

The entire text of this Emergency Rule and information about safety measures in our schools can be found on the district’s website along with the COVID-19 Dashboard that tracks positive cases by school.

Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s school for additional information.

 

 


Elliott Point Families,

Since the beginning of the year, many students have missed school due to COVID or being deemed a close contact. We are understanding of these times and are compassionate for each situation. If your student has been absent they may have missing assignments (designated with an “X” in Gradebook) and/or grades so their interim grade may not reflect their current classroom performance. After your student has completed any outstanding assignments their interim grade will be updated in Gradebook. As a reminder, student’s current grades are available on the Parent Portal.

 

Please contact your child’s teacher with any specific questions.

 

 

Sincerely,

Scott Nuss

Principal

COVID-19 Information for Parents for the 2021-2022 School Year - Updated 9/10/2021

Updated 9-10-2021

All Measures Effective Until Further Notice

Student health and safety continues to be a top priority as we return to more normal school operations.

The Florida Department of Education and the Florida Department of Health (DOH) released information Friday afternoon, four days prior to the opening of our school year, directing how the quarantining and isolation of students will be conducted in schools across the state of Florida. Based on this information, we have made some adjustments to our plan that was released to schools and families on July 28th. Our plan continues to emphasize keeping healthy students in school, maintaining enhanced cleaning and sanitizing practices, protecting medically fragile students, and providing continuity of academic services for students who miss school due to COVID-19 quarantine or isolation mandates from the Department of Health.

Student health and safety includes not only physical health and safety, but also academic health, mental health, and social-emotional well-being. A recent survey of school districts across the country found that 74% reported multiple indicators of increased mental health stresses among students during the pandemic. In Okaloosa County, we have also seen learning loss among students who have been disconnected from school the past sixteen months.

Being in school is critical for the overall well-being of our students. Our plans for this year strike a sensible balance that emphasizes your student’s success at school while also being mindful of the steps we need to take to keep our school environments safe.

Teachers, administrators, and support staff have been preparing this summer for a return to more normal school operations. The first day of school is August 10th, and we are excited to welcome our students back! We will retain critical practices that were established last year to keep our schools clean and sanitized.

Below are answers to questions that parents have asked this summer and will help you plan for the upcoming school year. Families may contact their child’s school if they have additional questions or visit our website (www.okaloosaschools.com) throughout the school year for up-to-date information regarding COVID-19.

The ELLUME at home COVID-19 test is the ONLY test currently recognized by the DOH for return to work and school of an asymptomatic individual with a negative test on or after day 5. All other at home COVID-19 tests are recognized for positive results only.

Okaloosa County voters approved the Half-Cent Sales Tax for Okaloosa Schools on November 3, 2020. The half-cent for schools will last for ten years and will fund many needed repairs and projects to improve aging school buildings.

Visit the Okaloosa Capital Improvement Program Dashboard to see what is happening now!

The proceeds from the half-cent sales tax are being used only as approved by the voters and as allowed by Florida law. To help the public see how these dollars are being used, the Citizens Oversight Committee hopes you will explore this website and get to know more about the improvements scheduled for every single school in the County.

Car Rider and Kindergarten pick up procedures for 2021-2022

As keeping your child safe is our highest priority, we have made changes to our dismissal process. Colored dismissal tags must be displayed for your family and any other students that are carpooling with you when you enter the pick-up line. Car tags should be clearly displayed in the front right corner of your dashboard or visor, making it visible from the sidewalk or curb. Kindergarten parents picking up from the outside classroom door need to bring these cards to the classroom door. If you do not have a dismissal tag for car rider pick up, you will be asked to park across the street, and enter the building. You must bring in your ID to receive a temporary replacement tag. You will then be asked to pull back into the end of the car rider pick-up line.  If you have more than one child, your children will be issued a “family” car tag.  Your child’s car tag number and color will remain the same throughout their years at Elliott Point.

Procedimientos de recogida de pilotos de automóviles y jardines de infantes para 2021-2022

Dado que mantener la seguridad de su hijo es nuestra máxima prioridad, hemos cabiado el proceso para la salida de estudiantes. Hemos dado hojas codificados por colores para cada  niño. Esta hoja tiene que ser visible para cada familia y cualquier otro estudiante que va a salir en el mismo coche cuando entre la línea para recojer a los niños.  La hoja debe ser fijada claramente en el lado derecho del panel de instrumentos, frente del asiento del copiloto, para que sea visible desde la acera o el encintado.  Los padres de los niños del Kinder quienes recogen al hijo de la puerta del aula deben de llevar esta hoja a la puerta del aula.  Si no tiene la hoja colorada de salida cuando viene a recoger al niño, pediremos  que estacione en el parque enfrente y entrar a la escuela.  Debe de traer una identificación para recibir una hoja temporaria de reemplazo.  Después tendrá que entrar la línea de coches para recoger al niño. Si tiene más de un hijo, a sus hijos se les entregará una etiqueta de automóvil “familiar”. El número y el color de la etiqueta del automóvil de su hijo seguirán siendo los mismos a lo largo de sus años en Elliott Point.
