Student quarantine policies revised
DENTON — Attendance procedures for quarantined students have been modified as of Nov. 8, the second quarter of this school year. This modification was made based on guidelines set by the Maryland State Department of Education.
A quarantined student who is ill and unable to participate in academic activities will be reported as absent, which follows the Caroline County Public Schools attendance policy.
Quarantined students who are healthy will be reported as present and are expected to participate in meaningful academic activities that advance student learning. CCPS will continue to use Google Classroom for access to class assignments and offer Zoom tutoring to support students who are quarantined.
If a quarantined student does not return to in-person, in-school instruction after the assigned quarantined period, the normal attendance or make-up work policies for absent students will be followed.
Questions regarding attendance should be addressed to the child’s teacher or school administrator.
