COVID-19 Mitigation Strategies for the 2021-2022 School Year (UPDATED 01/12/22):

  • Masks are strongly encouraged for all students; however, they are not required.
  • Masks ARE REQUIRED for all employees and adult visitors.
  • Social distancing will continue with a minimum of three feet of separation between students in their classrooms, to the extent possible.
  • Frequent hand washing and good respiratory etiquette will be routinely emphasized.
  • Disinfecting of physical spaces will occur throughout the school day.
  • The district will continue to monitor cases and report out new positive cases within classrooms.
  • The COVID-19 dashboard will be updated throughout the week and dependent on new positive cases.
  • Active and total cases are reported on our Collierville Schools COVID-19 Dashboard, below.
  • Positive cases are required to follow the TN Dept. of Health Guidelines and isolate at home for a minimum of 5 days.
    • Distance learning is available for all COVID-positive students and those students required to isolate at home after a close contact with a COVID-positive person.
 
In keeping with Collierville Schools practices to respond to COVID-19 and keeping parents, employees, students and the Collierville community informed, this website has been developed to report the number of lab-confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 among people at each Collierville school and central office location.  The information below includes the number of self-reported, lab-confirmed cases identified for each Collierville school (student only) and central office (staff only) since the school year began on Monday, August 9, 2021, and the number of cases identified by location that are currently active.  Identified positive case numbers include only students enrolled/assigned to a campus.
 
This site is updated SEVERAL TIMES PER WEEK and is timestamped above the tables. The portal is not regularly updated on weekends or Collierville Schools holidays when schools and central offices are closed. Collierville Schools staff complete both the case confirmation and contact tracing processes before data is reported in this portal. 
 

This general information is presented for parent, staff, and community notification purposes.  If a student or employee is determined to be a close contact of a positive case, parents and employees are notified individually and immediately with next steps, including quarantine information.

 

When an active case is confirmed, it is added simultaneously to both the active column and cumulative column. As each person recovers and meets the CDC guidelines to return to school/work, their case is no longer considered active and is removed from the active column while remaining part of the cumulative total.

 

If you have specific health related questions about close contact, quarantine, testing centers, and other COVID-19 information, please contact the Shelby County Health Department at (901) 222-6275.

1.).  Are the employees of Collierville Schools required to receive both vaccinations, prior to the start of the school year? 
A.).  Legally, Collierville Schools cannot mandate/require employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccinations.  Collierville Schools provided its employees with three vaccination events during spring 2021. 
 
2.).  What are the district's COVID-19 mitigation strategies?
A.).  Mask wearing is strongly encouraged, however not required for all students. At this time, during the rise in active cases, Collierville Schools is requiring all faculty and staff to wear a mask.  Throughout the entire school day, routine cleaning of the entire school campus will occur.   In the classroom, at a minimum, students will be separated by three feet of distance between each other to the extent possible.   Frequent hand washing and respiratory etiquette will be highly emphasized and practiced.  Collierville Schools established a districtwide free, VOLUNTARY COVID-19 testing program for all students and employees at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year.  Collierville Schools will continue its best-practices by collaborating with the Shelby County Health Department for our contact tracing protocols. 
 
3.).  When would Collierville Schools activate its remote learning model (a blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning at home)?
A.).  In the State of Tennessee, public schools do not have the option of transitioning to a remote instructional model if the school or district must close, based on our active, limited State of Emergency Plan.  Collierville Schools must exhaust all stockpile days to account for any and all lost instructional days (to equal 178), before the district can transition to a remote learning model.  This is subject to change if Governor Lee declares a different State of Emergency Plan. 
 
4.).  How will school communication be shared with families involving COVID-19 cases? 
A.).  Identifiable close contacts will receive communication via ParentSquare from the district.  The COVID-19 dashboard will be updated throughout the week and dependent on new positive cases. 
 
5.).  Will visitors have access to the school building? 
A.).  For the first quarter, visitors will only have access to the school building during kindergarten staggered days and on the first day of school.  This too, is subject to change after the first quarter.
