Mask Policy

Charlotte County Public Schools will make mask-wearing for students and staff mandatory to begin the 2021-22 school year. We ask parents to please be patient and supportive as we work through these fluid situations that may occur throughout the year. Our goal is to keep our schools open for in-person instruction every day. The best way to ensure that our schools remain open for in-person instruction every day is to screen your children before sending them to school and if they have any symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID, do not send them to school.

In CCPS schools this year:

  • Health screening for students and staff resumed as of 8/25/2021.
  • Distancing in classrooms and other areas will be maximized to the greatest extent possible. Distancing in some classrooms, cafeterias, school buses, and other areas will be less than three feet due to capacity.
  • Disinfecting will take place in classrooms daily and more frequently for highly occupied areas such as cafeterias and restrooms.
  • Students and staff with COVID symptoms will be sent home immediately. Again, please do not send your child to school with a fever or other COVID symptoms.
  • Parents will be notified if their children have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID in their school.
  • Remote instruction for CCPS is being provided only through Virtual Virginia this school year. The deadline for notifying CCPS of the intention to participate in remote instruction has passed (June 30, 2021). All students are required to attend school in person five days per week unless the Virtual Virginia option was chosen.

If you have any questions about the mask policy, please feel free to contact your child’s school or contact me at the School Board Office.
