Dear DACC Families,
At the Delaware Area Career Center, the health, safety and well-being of our students and staff are our top priorities. With the recently elevated discussion regarding the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the news, we want to take a moment to reinforce preventive safety measures and reference our process and communications.
As a school district, we are closely monitoring the situation and taking guidance from local and federal health officials as well as working with our staff to take necessary precautions. Please remember that if your child is sick, he or she should not be at school. Students need to be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to class after any illness.
The Delaware Area Career Center will continue to follow CDC recommendations to prevent any infection of a respiratory virus. As a school district we model these behaviors every day and we ask that you continue to reinforce these behaviors at home. Simple ways to protect yourself and your family include:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Handwashing for at least 20 seconds
- Avoid touching face, eyes, nose, etc
- Stay home when you are sick and visit your doctor
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue and immediately throw the tissue in the trash
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces often
Additional information about prevention and treatment can be found on the CDC's web site here:
Thank you for working with us in keeping students and staff healthy. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
