COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidance
MCPASD’s COVID health and safety guidance aligns with expert science to keep our students, staff, and community safe.
Recommendations from medical and public health experts at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) have changed over time as we better understood COVID safety measures and vaccines became available.
While the recommendations have changed over the last two years, our commitment to safety and the physical and mental health and well-being of our MCPASD community has not changed.
We continue to assess our strategies in consultation with medical advisors and public health experts. We will keep students and families informed of any changes in public health guidance that influence our health and safety policies.
We invite you to use this website as a resource for all of your COVID questions. Additionally, please feel free to call or email the MCPASD COVID hotline. Phone | 608-829-9018 Email | firstname.lastname@example.org
MCPASD continues to listen to and work with Medical Advisors from the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics.
