The Clinton Public School District is reporting 11 positive COVID-19 cases in the district. These cases were reported to the district over two days, Monday and Tuesday. Two district employees and two students at Clinton Park as well as one student at Northside Elementary, one student at Eastside Elementary, two students at Clinton Junior High School and three students at Clinton High School make up the 11 cases. School administrators at each campus have contacted parents of students in the classes who have been affected.
These cases bring CPSD’s second semester positives to 20 since the start of the semester on January 5, 2021. 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.
