Information Regarding Ebola Virus Concerns


The Orange City School District takes the safety and health of our students and staff very seriously. With the recent concern about the Ebola virus in Greater Cleveland and across the country, we want to assure you that we have appropriate health and cleaning procedures and protocols in place.

The District’s Health Services include a nurse at each school who uses a set of illness criteria to determine when a child needs to be sent home. This includes, among other things, having children with fevers sent home and not allowing them to return until their temperature is back to normal for 24 hours. The nurses also provide parental guidelines on when should families keep their child home.

The District custodial staff uses disinfectant cleaners at every building on campus nightly. The schools will continue to use these procedures unless we receive instruction from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health to increase those efforts due to Ebola or any other virus.
