An ongoing safety plan will be in place for the 2022-2023 school year.

2022-2023 COVID FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Are COVID-19 vaccines required for staff or for students?
No. CCA CSD supports anyone wanting to receive the vaccine or booster shots. We are not currently planning to offer clinics within our buildings for this school year.
If my child is diagnosed with COVID-19, will they be required to isolate at home?
Persons who test positive for COVID must isolate away from school for 5 days beyond symptom onset or 5 days beyond test date if asymptomatic (day of symptom onset or day of test if asymptomatic is counted as day “0”). If one or more COVID symptoms develop in an asymptomatic positive student or staff member, day “0” resets to the day of symptom onset and they must isolate for 5 more days beyond that. (See COVID Protocols above for complete explanation).
Will all parents of a building be notified if there is a positive COVID-19 case in a classroom or school building?
Parents/guardians can refer to the overall Illness Dashboard on the District website for illness information but COVID-19 notifications will not be sent out. The dashboard will be updated weekly.
Will my child be required to quarantine if they are considered a close contact?
Per IDPH, parents may determine if their child will quarantine as long as they remain symptom free.
Are in-person parent-teacher meetings possible?
Meetings with teachers may be either in-person or online as the situation permits and based on what is preferred for those participating in the meetings.
Meals are no longer free for the 22-23 school year due to changes in federal programming. Meal prices for 22-23 can be found here. Clear Creek Amana Community School District students may be eligible to receive free or reduced-price meals (breakfast and lunch) in accordance with guidelines set forth by the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. The District has made the process easy for families to apply for free and reduced-priced meals. Free and reduced meal information and applications can be found here. Applications must be filled out annually.
