From the Health Office
If ANY member of a household becomes ill with COVID-like symptoms OR are awaiting COVID test results, OR have tested positive for COVID, ALL students/district employees in the household MUST stay home until the symptomatic household member has provided the required documentation to the school nurse. It is up to the family to provide this documentation to all schools involved.
COVID-like symptoms include: Fever (100.4° F or higher), new onset of moderate to severe headache, shortness of breath, new cough, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain from an unknown cause, new congestion/runny nose, new loss of sense of taste or smell, nausea, fatigue from unknown cause, muscle or body aches. Medical Evaluation and Testing are Strongly Recommended for ALL persons with COVID-Like Symptoms.
Policy Regarding Return to School:
If a COVID test is completed for the symptomatic individual and test results are negative, the students/district employees living in the household may return to school after providing the negative test results to the school nurse.
If the symptomatic individual is evaluated by his/her doctor and an alternative diagnosis is provided, the students/district employees in the household may return to school after providing the doctor’s note with alternative diagnosis to the school nurse.
If no COVID testing or no evaluation by a healthcare provider of the symptomatic individual, the symptomatic individual will need to stay home 10 calendar days from onset of symptoms and ALL other students/district employees living in the household will need to stay home 14 calendar days from the onset of symptoms. Return to school will require a note from a parent/guardian indicating that the ill household member is fever-free without fever-reducing medication and that symptoms have improved.
If the symptomatic family member tests positive for COVID-19, the symptomatic individual will stay home for 10 calendar days and will need a Release from Isolation letter from the local health department before returning to school. All other students/district employees living in the household will need to stay home for 14 days and will need a Release from Quarantine letter from the local health department.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the nurse's office at 331-228-6906.
Middle School Transfer Request Info
MIDDLE SCHOOL TRANSFERS - REQUEST PERIOD OPEN FROM FEB. 1 - FEB. 26
Families who wish to submit a Middle School Transfer request may do so beginning February 1, 2021. Families must complete a separate form for each student they want to be transferred. Requests are granted based on space available. This means that siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.
Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.
Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance area are responsible for their own transportation.
Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.
The Middle School Transfer request window will close at 4:00pm on February 26, 2021.
If you have questions, please contact Tammy Marsan at: 331-228-2397.
