COVID-19 | Notification of a Positive Case

Last Updated: 10/12/2020 4:33 PM

How will I be notified about student and staff COVID-19 positive cases within the Cuyahoga Falls City Schools?

The 9.8.20 Ohio Department of Health directive requires school districts to inform parents in writing about student and staff COVID-19 positive cases and to share as much information as possible without disclosing protected health information. 

Effective immediately, you will be notified if there is a positive COVID-19 case as follows:

  • All parents notified who have students in the same school
  • Parents notified separately who have students that are considered to have been in direct contact with student who tested positive
  • Parents notified separately who have students in the same extracurricular activity
  • Parents notified separately who have students on the same bus 

We will no longer send emails to all parents in the district about each confirmed case; however, the information about all COVID-19 cases district-wide will be available in a dashboard on our website at COVID-19 reporting.
