CPSD Face maskThe Clinton Public School District is reporting four positive COVID-19 cases in the district. One faculty member at Northside, one faculty member at Sumner Hill and two students at CHS make up the four positive cases. School administrators at all three campuses have completed contact tracing and have contacted parents of students in the classes who have been affected.

Prewitt Contracting Services will conduct a deep cleaning of the campuses with electrostatic machines prior to the start of school on Wednesday. This brings CPSD’s total positive cases to 46 since the start of school on August 13. Contact tracing continues to reveal that all reported positive cases have been contracted from outside sources. No students or faculty members have contracted the virus from any Clinton campus.

 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. For more information, visit
