COVID-19 Resources

Information from the School Nurse

 
When should my child stay home and where should I go to find more information?
 
Students with any illness should be fever free for 24 hours in addition to improving symptoms prior to returning to school. In most cases, COVID-19 is clinically indistinguishable from other common respiratory illnesses. COVID-19 testing may be required to determine if a student is virus free. In this case, the student and other family members should remain home until testing results are known. Students with a positive COVID-19 test result or if COVID-19 cannot be ruled out with a negative test the student will be quarantined at home until it is safe to be around others, which is after 24 hours with no fever, respiratory symptoms have improved, AND 10 days since symptoms first appeared/positive test result. Students with a COVID-19 exposure will be required to quarantine at home for a minimum of 14 days, even if they are asymptomatic.
