Clinton Return to School Procedure

As Clinton School District prepare to welcome students back to school, it is important to understand how COVID-19 is spread in order for everyone to help do their part to minimize the exposure to the virus.

COVID-19 is mostly spread by respiratory droplets released when people talk, cough or sneeze. Personal prevention practices (such as handwashing, staying home when sick, physical distancing, and face coverings) and environmental cleaning and disinfection, are important principles that are covered in this document.

Clinton School District emphasize the importance of staying home when you don’t feel well. Incentives and award programs related to attendance will not be implemented again this year.

The Clinton District will be teaching the importance of these universal precautions, and they ask that all parents and guardians help reinforce them at home, as well. See “Safety Protocols” section for more information
