Dear Parents/Guardians of Region 14 Students,
The Region 14 School Nurses are collaborating in a multitude of measures to ensure that students and staff return to school in September to a safe and healthy environment during a worldwide pandemic and in order to do that we are asking for your assistance.
The CDC recommends that we practice preventive behaviors and the importance for parents, staff, and caregivers to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 at home. We have enclosed the steps that will guide you to perform an assessment of your child’s health prior to leaving for school to identify fever and other possible symptoms. Region 14 schools will follow the CDC guidelines of social distancing, frequent handwashing, masks, cough etiquette, and enhanced cleaning and disinfection of surfaces to prevent the spread of diseases.
Region 14 school nurses offices will be constructed to support an isolation room for students that become ill. Students will need immediate pickup within 30 minutes. It is mandated by the State of Connecticut that all newly enrolled students and students entering Pre-K , Kindergarten, Grade 6, and Grade 10 to be up to date on their immunizations and physicals. The health forms can be found and printed from our www.ctreg14.org. Please submit your health forms to your child’s school nurse.
For any additional questions or concerns, please contact your school nurse.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Best in Health and Safety,
Region 14 School Nurses & Superintendent of Schools
