Important Information on Coronavirus and Flu Preparedness from the Superintendent

The health and safety of our students and staff are always of paramount importance to our Board of Education and our administrative team. As such, we want to make you aware that our health professionals are actively engaged with all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) briefings and providing regular updates to the administrative team on the evolution of the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.  Even though there are only a handful of cases of coronavirus being active in Ohio at this time, we all have a part to play to keep our schools and homes safe. The District is reviewing procedures for how a potential outbreak would be addressed.

As a District, here is what we are doing:
• Our custodial teams are working diligently to ensure classrooms are thoroughly cleaned daily in each building, and disinfecting surfaces.
• Our teachers will also be working directly with students on education about the importance of hand washing, and, when necessary, we are allowing for additional time to wash hands.
• We are increasing the availability of hand sanitizer in each building.

In regards to travel, our health professionals are monitoring our planned school trips over the next month. Should any issues arise, families will be contacted directly by school administrators.

The CDC has several tips we would like to share with you.

According to the CDC, there are simple everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses. These include:
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with your arm or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

For the most reliable information, please visit the CDC website or the Ohio Department of Health website.

If you’re currently having symptoms and would like to talk with someone, please contact your health care provider. Warren County Career Center will keep you up-to-date on guidance from the Warren County Combined Health District, the Warren County Emergency Management Agency, the Ohio Department of Health and the CDC. If there was a need for the WCCC to close short term, the situation would be treated like any other calamity day. If there was a need for the District to close long term, we would look to an online model for learning, the details of which would be communicated.

We appreciate your time, and we will continue to provide you updates as needed.

Sincerely,

Rick Smith, WCCC Superintendent
