COVID Procedures

If your child has come into contact with someone who is COVID positive, you will be contacted by a school official to determine exact dates for quarantine. We look at each situation independently. Depending on your child's individual circumstances, these guidelines are generally followed:

  • If your child is fully vaccinated and showing no symptoms, they may continue to attend school as normal. A copy of the vaccination card must be emailed to Renee Smith at renee.smith1@rowan.kyschools.us

  • If you choose NOT to have your child tested and they display no COVID symptoms, they may return to school 10 days after their last exposure.

  • If you choose to have your child tested, they must have a PCR test (no rapid results are accepted). Your child may test on or after the fifth day after their last exposure. If negative, they may return to school after seven full days of quarantine. Negative results must be sent to Renee Smith at renee.smith1@rowan.kyschools.us. If your child tests positive, call the high school to report a positive test result.

  • If your child is quarantined, assignments are available on google classroom to complete. If your child is having difficulty logging into google classroom, please call the high school at 606-784-8956.

  • Again, these are only guidelines and each situation will be assessed on an individual basis. If you have questions, please call the high school at 606-784-8956 or the District Health Coordinator, Renee Smith, at 606-784-8928.
