Q: What should I do if my child is exhibiting COVID symptoms?
A: Families are required to report any potential COVID symptoms to their building nurse and await guidance prior to sending their child to school.
Q: How do I submit at-home testing results?
A: Use this form provided by the district.
Q: Where can I find the latest IDPH guidance?
