Clinton Public School District COVID-19 Update—October 26, 2020

The Clinton Public School District is reporting an employee at the district’s Central Office and two students at Eastside Elementary have tested positive for COVID-19.

The district employee did not previously have any contact with students and has not been on any campuses in the district. District administrators have contacted employees in Central Office who came into contact with the individual.

The two students testing positive from Eastside have been on quarantine due to exposure to a positive case outside of the district. They have not been in contact with any students.

Because of this, no students have been placed on mandatory quarantine.

Prewitt Contracting Services conducted a deep cleaning of Clinton Public School District’s Central Office with electrostatic machines prior to the start of business Monday morning.

These three cases bring CPSD’s total positive cases to 23 since the start of school on August 13.

CPSD will report all positive cases to the Mississippi State Department of Health and the Mississippi Department of Education on a weekly basis as required. Neither MSDH nor MDE require schools to report this information to the general public.

The district is committed to remaining transparent as we venture through the school year during the pandemic.

The Clinton Public School District continues to follow health and safety guidelines provided by the Centers of Disease Control and MSDH.
