CCSD Education Update
August 26, 2022
Updated COVID-19 Guidance
As the Clark County School District (CCSD) continues working with local and state health officials to monitor ongoing COVID-19 developments, we want to keep the community up to date on changes to mitigation strategies.
The following guidance applies to staff and students.
In line with recent recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), CCSD will no longer require close contacts to quarantine if they are symptom-free. However, close contacts must mask for 10 days after exposure while on CCSD campuses. Close contacts are also encouraged to test for COVID-19 five days after exposure.
The updated guidance will be utilized for cases reported on or after August 22, 2022. Any cases reported prior to that date will remain under the guidance in place at the time the contact tracing was completed.
COVID-19 positive individuals are still required to isolate for five days regardless of symptoms and wear a mask at all times around others for an additional five days. If an individual cannot wear a mask, they may not return to school until day 11 and must be symptom-free.
Clark County is currently in a low COVID-19 community transmission category.
If a student is not feeling well or has any symptoms of COVID-19 or tested positive for COVID-19, they must stay home from school.
The Clark County School District (CCSD) COVID-19 Parent/Guardian Hotline is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and can be reached by calling 702-799-4322. Additionally, when call wait times are over 30 minutes, parents can utilize this form to submit information for review.
Parents/Guardians are asked to call the hotline to report their student's positive COVID test result, recent exposure to a COVID positive individual or possible COVID symptoms. The call center has English and Spanish-speaking staff available.
In an effort to provide additional support to students, the Clark County School District has the Connection Line available now through September 9, 2022. The Connection Line will be available from 4 p.m. - 9 p.m. Monday to Friday. The Connection Line will also be available from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. on weekends through September 5, 2022.
