Changes to the Health Office

There is an isolation room, separate from the health office, for any individuals experiencing signs of illness. To limit movement, certain complaints will be handled safely in the classroom. Classrooms are stocked with basic first aid supplies, including Band-Aids, gloves, antiseptic, and ice packs.

Contact Tracing

When a positive case is reported through Covid@ccookschool.org the individual or individual’s parent/guardian will be contacted by the Pandemic Coordinator or School Nurse. The Pandemic Coordinator will work with the individual to identify anyone in the Cook community who they have been in close contact with beginning 48 hours prior to symptom onset or the date of the positive test. The Pandemic Coordinator will report all confirmed positive COVID-19 cases to CDPH and, in collaboration with CDPH, will verify close contacts.

After School Inquiries

The school nurse office hours are from 8 am - 4:00 pm Monday through Friday. Emails received after hours or on the weekend will be returned the following school day. If  you require immediate assistance related to COVID-19, please email our COVID-19 Response Team at Covid@ccookschool.org or Pandemic Coordinator at Lskinner@ccookschool.org.
