HOME STUDENT HEALTH SCREENER QUESTIONS
Parents,

Information from SJCSD dated April 15, 2021

CDC updates regarding quarantine requirements after vaccination:
 
  • Individuals who have been fully vaccinated – that is, 2 weeks or more have passed since the second dose in a 2-dose vaccine or the first dose in a 1-dose vaccine series – will not be required to quarantine following exposure, provided he/she does not develop new symptoms of COVID-19. 
 
The Department of Health (DOH) requests that we follow the current contact tracing protocol, regardless of vaccination status. They will contact exposed individuals to ensure no symptoms have developed, research his/her vaccination status in the state system, and provide further COVID education. The DOH will determine if the individual is exempt from quarantine. The Health Services Department, as well as the school nurses, will work diligently to assist students, parents and staff in this process.
 
This has been updated on our District Health Services webpage.

END OF YEAR TESTING INFORMATION - DISMISSAL INFO
Dear KNIGHTS,

As the school year comes to an end and the testing season begins, it is our goal to ensure an efficient and positive learning environment. In order to accomplish this, we would like to share some information with you. 

1. The semester exam schedule for the week of June 7-June 10 is posted on the Creekside website. Students will remain in class for the entire scheduled exam block each day, and exams will only be administered during the designated periods and times listed on this schedule.

2. Creekside will follow normal attendance procedures. To ensure a safe and smooth process for all students, we ask you to review and adhere the following check-out procedures on the Creekside website: http://www-chs.stjohns.k12.fl.us/parents/attendance/. As a reminder, we are not able to accept parent phone calls for early check-outs. Early dismissal notes need to be turned into the front office before school begins.

Finally, we appreciate your continued support as we work through exam week. We wish you and your family a safe and relaxing summer.

* Attendance Question of the Week*

During Exam Week, does my student need a note to leave after the exam time if they are not going to lunch? 
Answer: For Monday (6/7), Tuesday (6/8), or Thursday (6/10) – NO, a note is not needed on those days; students may leave after the exams. However, on Wednesday (6/9), there is class after lunch so for that day only, yes, a note will need to be turned into the front office if the student is leaving earlier than the end of the school day.
