Safety Protocols

Together, we are facing an unprecedented health crisis in our community. The Middletown City School District believes the reopening of our schools should be a decision informed by applicable health and safety information. Our number one priority remains the safety and well-being of our students and staff. 

MCSD will communicate with families and staff regarding positive COVID-19 cases only if they are personally impacted or determined to be at risk as per CDC guidelines. Federal privacy laws protect student and staff confidentiality; therefore, personally identifiable information on any individuals testing positive or being asked to isolate or quarantine will not be shared. 

In the event a MCSD student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, the district contact tracing team will work with the City of Middletown Health Department and the school administration on providing communication and guidance to impacted students and staff letting them know what steps they need to take and the potential need to quarantine.
