CFCSD Revises COVID-19 Student Absence Policy to Comply with New SCPH Guidelines

RTS Logo

On October 6, 2020 the Summit County Public Health Department (SCPH) issued revised guidelines for the monitoring and management of COVID-19. In order to be compliant with these new guidelines, the Cuyahoga Falls City School District (CFCSD) has altered our policy regarding student absences. 

REVISED POLICY: Any student who calls off of school because they are experiencing one of the known symptoms associated with COVID-19, will be expected to stay home for 10 days. At the end of those 10 days, they may return as long as they have been fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of a fever-reducing medicine), and there has been an improvement in symptoms. 

Students may return prior to the 10 day period with documentation of clearance from a physician. 

Contact Krystal Nykaza, CFCSD Clinical Coordinator, at or 330-926-3801, ext. 502060 if you have any questions.
