RTMS STUDENT ABSENCES DUE TO COVID OR QUARANTINE

RTMS Parent Information


Possible Quarantine Scenarios:

1. Student is exposed or tests positive, parent contacts school nurse and completes wellness survey. Student goes into quarantine. Student immediately goes on “on-line Classroom Guest” status.


2. Student assessed by school nurse/clinic, has symptoms consistent with COVID and is sent home. The student has three days to obtain a doctor’s note with a diagnosis.

a. Obtains a written diagnosis from the doctor:

· Positive for COVID – contact tracing occurs and the student does not return to school.

· Negative for COVID – student returns to school after three days.

b. Student does not go to the doctor for a medical diagnosis:

· Student will be quarantined for 10-14 days.

· Student will become a “Classroom Guest” at day four.


Work Flow Steps for COVID:

1. If the student will be out for more than three days, the student will become a “Classroom Guest.” To maintain Schoology systems, the student will receive links to an online teacher while out. However, they will continue to do the work of their F2F teacher.


2. AP will follow-up to ensure the student received links as a “Classroom Guest.”


3. Counselor will notify teachers when the student is expected back on campus to resume regular F2F instruction.


**Classroom Guest – term for new online learners who transitioned to online learning from F2F due to quarantine or medical reason.
