Important Reminders from the Nurse
- Please contact the nurse if your student has been exposed to COVID-19 in the community or in the household, or if they test positive for COVID-19 so we can determine an appropriate quarantine for your student.
- If your student is exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, congestion/runny nose, sore throat, vomiting/diarrhea or loss of taste/smell, severe headache), please keep them home and contact the school nurse or your child’s health care provider.
- If your student has been vaccinated against COVID-19, please submit documentation of immunization. Fully immunized students will not be required to quarantine if exposed to COVID-19 (as of 1/11/22).
