Health & Safety Summary 2022-2023

North Clackamas Schools will maintain many of the mitigation strategies that were in place last school year, such as reinforcing good health hygiene habits of frequent hand washing and sanitizing, covering your coughs and sneezes, and staying home when you are ill. Some strategies have been relaxed and will be optional for most students and staff members, such as mask-wearing and physical distancing. 


2022-23 Communicable Disease Mitigation Measures

COVID-19 Vaccination

Recommended for all students who are eligible. Required for staff, volunteers, and those who supply goods or services to school-based programs, per OAR 333-019-1030, unless they have received an approved medical or religious exception. 


Several immunizations are required by the State of Oregon for school attendance (EnglishEspañolРусскийTiếng Việt,  中文). These immunizations must be current by mid-February 2023 to avoid exclusion from school. 

Face Coverings

Optional for students and staff when in most parts of the building. Required (by state law) for both students and staff while in areas of the building that are providing health care services (e.g.  isolation rooms, health rooms, school based health centers). Strongly recommended for those recovering from COVID-19 if they will be around others on days 6-10 after a positive test or onset of symptoms.


COVID-19 testing may be done with a home test or at a local pharmacy or doctor’s office. On-site testing at school will only be conducted on an as-needed basis with parent/guardian consent for students 14 and younger. Parental Consent Form


People who have tested positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate at home for at least five days, with day 1 being the first full day after symptom onset or positive test (if asymptomatic). They may return to work/school on Day 6, or as soon thereafter as they have been fever-free for at least 24 hours without the aid of medication, and other symptoms are improving.


People who have been exposed to COVID-19 are not required to quarantine. It is recommended that they wear a mask for 10 days and get tested on day 5. 


Classes, lunches and recess are returning to standard pre-COVID setup. 

Physical Distancing

Physical distancing of at least three feet between yourself and others is recommended as a general healthy practice; however no set amount of physical distancing will be required or enforced. 

Contact Tracing

Our Contact Tracing Team will continue to provide instructions and advice to students, staff, and families as needed. It will also continue to investigate potential outbreaks, respond accordingly, communicate with local and state health authorities, and collaborate with our District Nursing team.

Weekly Data

NCSD will continue to post district-wide data on positive cases of COVID-19 on a weekly basis. 


NCSD will not send families an email notification when individuals in their school test positive for COVID-19. Communication will be sent on an as-needed basis if there is a communicable disease outbreak in a classroom, cohort, or school; or if there is general information to share with all families within a school or the district as a whole.

Too Sick for School

There are many reasons why a student or staff member might be too sick to attend school or work. Please reference this list if you or your child develop symptoms, and do not return to school or work until symptoms have resolved. 


At this time, the risk of monkeypox to children and adolescents in the U.S. is low. It is particularly unlikely to be spread in school because of the prolonged skin-to-skin contact that is needed for transmission. Two of the main symptoms of monkeypox are a new rash and fever, which are two of the symptoms on our Too Sick for School guidelines. Learn more about monkeypox on the CDC’s website
