If a staff member or in-person student exhibits COVID-like symptoms or is COVID-positive, the school nurse will conduct a contact tracing assessment. This assessment is completed under the guidance of the Director of Health Services and, if appropriate, the Hampton Health Department. The cumulative positive COVID-19 test number on our dashboard represents HCS staff members and students who test positive for COVID-19 and were present in a school building or an administrative office within 48 hours of presenting COVID-like symptoms. 


Our Healthy & Safe Return-to-School Communications Guidance for Positive COVID-19 Cases will be utilized to communicate with families and staff. If new case(s) occur that are related to an initial positive case in a specific classroom or working area, the new case(s) will be documented on the HCS COVID dashboard. In addition, communication will be provided to staff and families of in-person learners who have been impacted/quarantined with the initial case(s). If contact tracing determines a possible exposure outside of the initial positive case in a specific classroom or working area, a follow-up communication will be provided per our guidelines. 


HCS is not tracking cases of students who are 100% virtual nor staff members who are working 100% virtually off-site.


Health Metrics and In-person Learning


OVERVIEW

Hampton City Schools will make decisions on the level of in-person instruction based on the status of the metrics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), as well as key mitigation strategies implemented in our schools and operational capacity. 

On September 15, 2020, CDC published the Indicators for Dynamic School Decision-Making framework in which they propose core and secondary indicators that states, localities, and schools can use to aid in decision-making regarding school reopening for in-person learning. VDH recommends that schools use the CDC framework to assess the risk of introduction and transmission of COVID-19 in schools and to help inform decisions about school operations and necessary mitigation strategies.

 

As of February 12, 2021, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a new Operational Strategy for K-12 Schools to incorporate the best available evidence at this time. The indicators and thresholds in the operational strategy replace the former core indicators in the Indicators for Dynamic School Decision-Making. Additionally, on March 9, 2021, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) released Revised Interim Guidance for Reopening PreK-12 Schools (PDF). This guidance revises and replaces the guidance released on January 14, 2021 and incorporates elements of the CDC’s Operational Strategy for K12 Schools, released on February 12, 2021. The Revised Interim Guidance document is intended to help officials assess the risk of introduction and transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in schools, and inform decisions about school operations and the implementation of necessary mitigation strategies.
 
VDH recommends schools use the CDC Indicators of Community Transmission together with the Interim Guidance for K-12 School Reopening document to inform decisions about school operations with regard to COVID-19. Based on this, the School Metrics information on this page has been updated to reflect those changes.

 

CDC Core Indicators

  1. Total number of new cases per 100,000 persons within the last 7 days
  2. Percentage of NAAT (PCR) tests that are positive during the last 7 days
  3. Ability of the school to implement five key mitigation strategies (self-assessment)

*The state updates the metrics/core indicators weekly, not daily.

Secondary Indicators: 

The following secondary indicators can be used to support the decision making process in local communities but should not be used as the main criteria for determining the risk of disease transmission in schools.

  1. Percent change in new cases per 100,000 population during the last 7 days compared with the previous 7 days
  2. Percentage of hospital inpatient beds in the region that are occupied
  3. Percentage of hospital inpatient beds in the region that are occupied by patients with COVID-19

*The state updates the metrics/secondary indicators weekly, not daily

CDC Core Indicators Data

Current as of April 10, 2021
HCS Status:

  1. Total number of new cases per 100,000 persons within the last 7 days for Hampton is 138.5. --HIGH TRANSMISSION
  2. Percentage of NAAT (PCR) tests that are positive during the last 7 days for Hampton is 11.3%. -- HIGH Transmission
  3. Ability of the school to implement five key mitigation strategies (self-assessment measurement) -- LOW TRANSMISSION

Secondary Indicators Data

Current as of April 10, 2021
HCS Status:

  1. Percent change in new cases per 100,000 population during the last 7 days compared with the previous 7 days for Hampton is -15.8% -- LOW TRANSMISSION
  2. Percentage of hospital inpatient beds in the region that are occupied for Hampton is 72.1% -- LOW TRANSMISSION
  3. Percentage of hospital inpatient beds in the region that are occupied by patients with COVID-19 for Hampton is 6.0% -- LOW TRANSMISSION

KEY MITIGATION STRATEGIES IMPLEMENTED AT SCHOOLS 

Below are the CDC key mitigation strategies that schools should adopt to the extent possible, practical and feasible. The ability of the school to implement the 5 key mitigation strategies determines the risk category the school falls within.

  • Consistent and correct use of masks
  • Social distancing to the largest extent possible
  • Hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette
  • Cleaning and disinfection
  • Contact tracing in collaboration with local health department

Hampton City Schools has developed the HCS COVID Mitigation Health Plans well as specific protocols/expectations for in-person instruction. Our ability to implement these at every school, every day will impact the number of students we are able to bring on site for learning.

The school division will continue to monitor the Peninsula Health Department metrics to determine the status of community transmission in Hampton within the context of surrounding cities/counties and Virginia as well as data points generated by the CDC.

The data should not be interpreted to indicate that a two-week trend would immediately prompt a change in instructional status. Each level of transmission represents a range of transmission rates. Additionally, operational capacity such as bus transportation logistics, student scheduling, and sufficient human resources may impact in-person learning in some instances.

OPERATIONAL CAPACITY 


Whereas the health metrics will operate as a gateway to consider bringing students into classrooms; operational capacity is required to provide certain learning models. 


Operational capacity is defined as the ability of the division to supply a labor force or service to effectively meet the demand of providing in-person learning either five days a week or a modified in-person schedule while implementing the key mitigation strategies. When the demand can meet the supply, the division can offer the desired learning model.The division must consider both instructional and operational staff in determining staffing capacity.
