CAPITAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
COVID-19 INFORMATION
AND UPDATES

Capital School District’s Board of Education met to review and discuss recommendations about the 2021-2022 school year. As a result, it was decided that Capital School District will return to 5 days each week of in-person instruction at school. Safety remains a top priority in all of our plans, and protocols will remain in place to keep our students and staff safe. Students and staff will be required to wear masks in school, except while eating or outside. We strongly encourage students to return to the classroom, because learning in-person at school is the most effective approach to address learning gaps.

We will continue to monitor national and state COVID guidance and will be prepared to make and communicate any required adjustments.  You should know that our current recommendations reflect the guidance from the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services. 

Thank you for your support as we continue to ensure that our staff and students return safely to schools.

Please review the recommendations from health officials below:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing. Alcohol-based hand cleaners that are at least 60-95% alcohol are also effective.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes. The main way that the flu spreads from person to person is in the droplets produced by coughs and sneezes, so it is important to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or cough/sneeze into your elbow or shoulder, not into your hands.
  • Do not share personal items such as drinks, food, or utensils.
  • Do not attend school if you are sick. Any student or staff who is determined to be sick while at school will be sent home.
  • Keep sick individuals at home for at least 24 hours after there is no longer a fever or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicine like ibuprofen or acetaminophen.
