Covid Vaccination & Quarantine

The Covid vaccination has become available for children ages 5-11 years old. In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH), students and staff who are fully vaccinated against Covid DO NOT need to quarantine if they were determined to have been in close interaction with a positive individual as long as they are free of symptoms. Someone is considered fully immunized 14 days after their second dose. Proof of vaccination to the Health Office is required in order to avoid quarantine. As always, if your child is ill or has any of the following symptoms, please do not send them to school:
