CMCSS 2022-2023 In-Person Learning COVID-19 Overview

CMCSS has communicated with families since last year that schools cannot eliminate the spread of COVID-19 during in-person learning, but our collective actions can help mitigate the spread. The District’s COVID-19 mitigation strategy has always been about using multiple layers to improve success, sometimes referred to as the Swiss Cheese model. For the 2022-2023 school year, CMCSS is using the following mitigation layers: Using MERV 13 instead of MERV 9 filters in all buildings Increasing outdoor air ventilation Employing enhanced two-step cleaning throughout buildings Encouraging self-screening, masks, handwashing, covering sneezes, and staying home when sick for all students, employees, and visitors Replenishing hand sanitizing stations Promoting the use of personal water bottles and filling stations Providing and COVID-19 testing for employees and their families at Onsite Employee Health and Wellness Clinics Updating and implementing the Return to School/Work Flowchart  COVID-19 Exposure Response Plan When a CMCSS student or CMCSS employee tests positive for COVID-19, they will need to notify either the school nurse (if they are a student) or their supervisor (if they are an employee). The medical office that performed the test will notify the Montgomery County Health Department for contact tracing. Click here for the CMCSS Communicable Diseases and/or Illness Management Policy.
