Important Information about Coronavirus (CoVID-19)
Collinsville Community Unit School District #10, in collaboration with our school nursing staff and custodial/maintenance department, is monitoring Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) news releases and guidelines regarding measures to prevent spread of communicable diseases, such as Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Our measures to prevent the spread of flu-like symptoms include:
- additional cleaning of common high-touch surfaces;
- instructing our students and staff to use proper hand washing techniques;
- advising everyone to cover coughs and sneezes, as well as to avoid touching eyes, noses and mouths;
- Asking parents to keep students out of school if they exhibit signs of illness.
As further instructions become available from state and local health departments, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we will make appropriate adjustments to our practices.
