Health and Safety

Health Services: School Nurse

School Nurse: Ms. Jenelle Gaines

jgaines@cmths.org

 

A full time registered nurse is available for students and staff to assist with emergencies, first aide treatment, health problems, safety, environment control and counseling. The nurse works closely with the home school nurses to provide continuity of health teaching and care for CMTHS students. 

Students are required to have the parent/guardian signed permission card to work on hazardous equipment. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to complete student health card, signature sheet and all other required documents during the summer on and on the Mandatory Student Orientation day before the first day of class. Copies will be located in the main office and online.

CMTHS New Masking Guidelines

 

Effective Thursday, March 3, masks will be optional for students, staff, and guests while indoors at CMTHS. 

This change is being made based on the updated recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The CDC released new masking guidelines on Friday, 2/25/2022 which state that communities may alter masking requirements based on three new tiers for defining COVID transmission - high, medium, and low. A community’s level is determined by the number of hospital admissions, the strain on healthcare systems, and the number of cases in that area. Currently, Montgomery County is in the medium category.

The CDC recommends that people who live in areas of medium transmission should stay current with vaccines, get tested if symptomatic and if at risk for severe illness, speak to your physician for masking guidance.

Those who have symptoms, test positive, or are exposed to someone with COVID should wear a mask.  Masks also must be worn in the nurse’s office.  Disposable masks will be available if needed. According to the guidelines, individuals who test positive for COVID-19 will continue to quarantine.

Please be prepared to talk with your child about respecting family/student/staff choices related to masking. 

Sincerely, Dr. Angela King, Executive Director
