Update #3 - March 5, 2020
 
With Spring Break next week, many of our students, staff, and families may be embarking on planned travel or enjoying our beautiful community during the vacation.
 
Per the direction of the Florida Department of Health in Collier County (FLDOH-Collier), this is to advise that in the event students and/or District staff travel to China, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Iran, or Hong Kong, they shall voluntarily self-isolate for a 14-day period upon return. The District will notify the FLDOH-Collier accordingly. If students and/or District staff return from these countries and enter our building sites without voluntary self-isolation, Collier County Public Schools has been directed to promptly notify the Florida Department of Health in Collier County.

PREVENTION TIPS
As the health and safety of our CCPS Family continues to be a top priority for our District, we want to remind everyone of the importance of taking preventative measures to avoid illness.
 
Today, all students will be receiving a copy of handwashing flyers to take home. The flyers are school-level specific and are shown below. We encourage you to review the steps with your family in order to continue building the good habit of handwashing.
