COVID VACCINATION

Dear MCCPS Community,

We are following the updated DESE guidelines regarding COVID-19 protocols.

Please note - it is very difficult to trace the source of every positive case at MCCPS, but we are beginning to see trends in close contacts testing positive up to a week after a potential exposure. However, it is difficult to discern whether these cases are related only to school exposure, or to exposure of peers outside of school, or others outside of school. Here’s what we are seeing:

  • Whole households are testing positive for COVID, despite vaccination status. Rapid tests are often negative for COVID for several days before an individual tests positive. Oftentimes, it takes up to a week for all members to test positive - provided they continue testing.
  • If members of your household have tested positive for COVID, but your student has not yet, please email our school nurse or guidance on how to proceed with school.

MCCPS COVID Data:

In addition to our active isolation cases, when we have both staff and students quarantining pending results and staff  and students cleared to be back on campus, while they are in day 6-10 following their isolation. It is crucial that these students wear their masks properly and adhere to extra precautions around outdoor mask wearing and distancing.

We urge you to take every precaution possible:

  • Stay home and get tested if you have any COVID-like symptoms.
  • Wear the best mask possible. We recommend that students wear high filtration masks, such as KN95 or KF94.
  • Get vaccinated and boosted.
  • If you have a known exposure, reach mwilson@marbleheadcharter.com for guidance.

Here is the information about the COVID19 vaccine. We encourage you to have your child vaccinated to protect themselves, your family, and our school community. Please speak to your child’s doctor about their plans to administer the vaccine and get any questions you may have answered. The vaccine is our pathway to a post-pandemic world.

Reminder: Responding to COVID-19 Scenarios 

As we shift to a mask optional policy, it is important to note the guidelines for close contacts, masking, testing, and quarantine. 

Per DESE guidance, if students or staff are unmasked, unvaccinated (or not up to date with their booster), and exposed to a positive COVID case in or outside of school, they WILL need to follow masking, testing and quarantining guidelines set by the CDC, as DESE is no longer offering the “test and stay” program. We will use the CDC’s guidance to calculate quarantine after an exposure. This guidance is outlined in the table below:

If you and your child's doctor decide to have your child vaccinated against COVID-19, please let the School Nurse know by filling out the Student COVID Vaccine Report Form once your child has received all recommended doses of the COVID vaccine. This data will be used to determine when/if we have 80% of our community fully vaccinated to allow us to reevaluate our current COVID policies and protocols. Please feel free to contact the School Nurse if you have any questions or concerns.

This is 2021-2022 Data.
