    How Can You Help?


    Our Mission

    In all that we do, we teach, so that in all children do, they have the opportunity to learn.


    In order to achieve an appropriate level of compliance with the recent directive from Dr. Joseph A. Lapado, MD, PHD, Florida State Surgeon General, which addresses quarantining asymptomatic Escambia County School District (ECSD) students, new quarantining procedures will be implemented across the District, effective immediately. 


    Under this ruling, parents and guardians will have expanded choices relative to the quarantine of their children.


    Students who are exposed to a COVID-19 positive case and who are asymptomatic, will no longer be required to quarantine.  In this situation, if a parent wishes to send their asymptomatic child to school, no other action is necessary on the part of the parent or guardian.  


    Parents, however, do still have the right to quarantine their asymptomatic student(s) who have been deemed exposed to a COVID-19 positive case, for up to seven (7) days from the date of exposure.  In order to help ensure the accuracy of attendance reporting, the parent or guardian of an asymptomatic student(s) who wishes to quarantine their student(s), must notify the school of this decision upon learning of the exposure to a COVID-19 positive case. 


     “This new directive has altered District, as well as parental, protocols,”  stated Superintendent Timothy A. Smith.  “This ever-evolving situation will continue to be a work in progress.  We ask that our parents and the community continue to work with District personnel as we navigate these new directives.”


    Symptomatic students or students who have been deemed COVID-19 positive, may return to school after:

    • receiving a negative COVID-19 test result and remaining asymptomatic  OR

    • ten (10) days have passed since symptoms began or positive test result and have had no fever for 24 hours   OR 

    • receiving written permission from a medical doctor licensed under chapter 458, an osteopathic physician licensed under chapter 459 or an advanced registered nurse practitioner licensed under chapter 464.  


    The District will continue to keep records of contact tracing, adhere to enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols, and encourage social distancing, where feasible.

    Parent Links

    Due to recent legislation, specifically House Bill 241, parents must give written consent in order for their child to participate in any school health services. This is a big change. In previous years, health services were provided to all students and parents were given the option to opt out of health screenings. Only medication administration and medical procedures required written consent. 
    Parents will now be given the option to choose more specifically those services from health care staff that they wish to authorize for their child.
    Health services include first aid, emergency care, health appraisals, nursing assessments, health referrals, health counseling, health promotion, disease and injury prevention,  health education, and health screenings. 
    If you have not provided written consent for health services, we cannot provide any health assessments. You will need to pick up your student from school if they come to the clinic for any reason.
    A consent form is available at your child's school and is available on the Health Services page of the District website under parent resources. 
    The Student Health Verification Form will be sent home during the first days of school. This form can also be utilized to give your written consent.
