Attendance procedures for quarantined students have been modified as of the 2nd quarter of this school year (Nov. 8). This modification was made based on guidelines set by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE). 

For quarantine students who are unable to participate in academic activities: 

An isolated student who is ill and unable to participate in academic activities will be reported as absent, which follows the CCPS attendance policy.

For quarantined students who are able to participate in academic activities:

Quarantined students who are healthy will be reported as present and are expected to participate in meaningful academic activities that advance student learning. CCPS will continue to use Google Classroom for access to class assignments and offer Zoom tutoring to support students who are quarantined.

If a quarantined student does not return to in-person, in-school instruction after the assigned quarantined period, the normal attendance or make-up work policies for absent students will be followed. 

Questions regarding attendance should be addressed to the child’s teacher or school administrator.
