Operations Guidelines

Here is a link for the complete 2021-2022 Operations Guidelines. Below is a summary. 

“A key to our success last year is that we came together. We had a positive attitude. We decided we were going to get through this and have school and we were successful, more successful than many other places. That’s what I want to encourage everybody to do again: Come together. Give grace. Have patience. Be flexible. Assume positive intent.”  said Chris Cooper, Superintendent, “I’m looking forward to another great school year. I’m so thrilled to be starting my second year here in Clearwater and I’m looking forward to seeing everybody soon.”


  • Masks are optional in the school buildings for now, but may be used in limited circumstances and time frames. 

  • Hygiene measures are in place. Social distancing will be used when possible so as not to hinder education. 

  • The district must comply with federal, state and local laws and orders.

    • The CDC has mandated masks on all public transportation -- including school buses.

    • The Sedgwick County Health Department quarantine requirements must be met. If someone is in close contact with a Covid-19 positive person, vaccinated people will not be required to quarantine. Unvaccinated people will be able to take a rapid test. If the test is negative, they can return to a regular school day.

    • To avoid quarantine (if you are a close contact to a Covid-19 positive), it is your option to provide proof of Covid-19 positive in the last six months or proof of vaccination. 

  • We are working with KDHE to provide rapid tests and will provide testing-site details when available.

  • Please stay home if you have any viral symptoms. Keep using social distancing measures at school events.  

  • At school open house nights, we are asking just one parent to come and not to stay too long.
