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. Our Healthy & Safe Return-to-School Communications Guidance for Positive COVID-19 Cases will be utilized to communicate with families and staff. 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. 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.

CDC Core Indicators:

  1. Total number of new cases per 100,000 persons within the last 14 days*
  2. Percentage of RT-PCR tests that are positive during the last 14 days
  3. Ability of the school to implement five key mitigation strategies (self-assessment)

*This indicator differs from the daily case incident rate per 100,000 used in VDH’s Daily Regions dashboard because it captures the case incidence for 14 days rather than just one day.

 

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

CDC Core Indicators Data

Current as of November 24, 2020
HCS Status:

  1. Total number of new cases per 100,000 persons within the last 14 days for Hampton is 271.0 -- HIGHEST RISK
  2. Percentage of RT-PCR tests that are positive during the last 14 days for Hampton is 6.3% -- MODERATE RISK
  3. Ability of the school to implement five key mitigation strategies (self-assessment measurement) -- LOWER TO LOWEST RISK

Secondary Indicators Data

Current as of November 24, 2020
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 37.9% -- HIGHEST RISK
  2. Percentage of hospital inpatient beds in the region that are occupied for Hampton is 66.6% -- LOWEST RISK
  3. Percentage of hospital inpatient beds in the region that are occupied by patients with COVID-19 for Hampton is 4.6% -- LOWEST RISK

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.

Differences between the VDH Pandemic Metrics dashboards and CDC Indicators for Dynamic School Decision-Making Metrics 

  • VDH created the VDH Pandemic Metrics dashboards in June 2020. On September 15, 2020, CDC published the School Indicators for Dynamic Decision Making.
  • VDH is evaluating the differences between the thresholds and the timeframes used in the VDH Pandemic Metrics dashboards and the CDC School Metrics dashboard until October 14, 2020, and will determine whether it is beneficial to make the VDH Pandemic Metrics dashboards' thresholds consistent with the CDC School Metrics dashboard case incidence thresholds.
  • https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/coronavirus/key-measures/pandemic-metrics/ 

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.

While decreasing case trends may support a move toward in-person instruction, 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 delay the possibility of 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.
