Covid 20210922

September 22, 2021

Dear Parents and Staff:

The Clinton Public Schools received notification today of positive COVID-19 test results for two members of the Joel school community.  The individuals who tested positive were last in school on Tuesday, September 21, 2021.

Following the guidance of CT River Area Health District (CRAHD), our local health district, and the CT State Department of Public Health, contact tracing was conducted today. All individuals who were determined to be in close contact with the positive cases have received a phone call and have been informed about required actions.  

It is imperative that all students, staff, and parents continue to work together both in-school and out-of-school to control the spread of COVID-19. The proven mitigation strategies, including vaccination, mask-wearing indoors, social distancing, and hand hygiene are necessary to reduce and control the spread of COVID-19.  If any staff or students exhibit any of the symptoms related to COVID-19 they should stay home, call their medical provider to report their symptoms, and notify School Nurse Supervisor Donna Frechette at or 860-664-6572.  

The District will continue to immediately respond to notifications of positive COVID-19 cases of students or staff in the district, to work closely with the CT River Area Health District, and to communicate with our families and staff all required information and notifications.  Summary data of positive cases and public health metrics are updated weekly and can be found on the COVID-19 dashboard on the district website.   

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or our School Nurse Supervisor Donna Frechette at
