COVID- 19 Protocols- Updated Jan 2023

Parents should monitor students for signs of illness before bringing them to school in the morning. Students who show signs of COVID-19 should not come to school and should:

  • Seek advice from personal medical provider whether to take a COVID-19 test.
  • Follow the medical provider’s suggestions which may include:
  • Staying home until receiving a negative test response OR
  • Staying home and isolating using CDC Guidelines.

If a student is kept home for the day because of an illness with non-COVID-19 related symptoms, we ask that you communicate with the office regarding the nature of the illness. We will work with you to determine if a COVID-19 test or a note from a physician is necessary for the child to return to school. We understand that this may be an inconvenience but we thank you in advance for working with us to make sure that all of the students and staff are kept safe.

If a student is ill and the medical professional says they do not need a COVID test, then the student is able to return to school if at least twenty-four hours have passed since fever resolution without fever-reducing medications and other symptoms have improved.

If a child reports COVID-19 symptoms, they will be removed from the classroom and sent to the isolation area where they will be supervised by a staff member until a parent/guardian can come and pick them up. Please take the child to a medical professional and follow their advice on next steps.

Please review the Flow Chart above for more information and contact the school office if you have any questions. This page was updated January 2023.
