RTMS STUDENT ABSENCES DUE TO COVID OR QUARANTINE

RTMS Parent Information

2. Student assessed by school nurse/clinic, has symptoms consistent with COVID and is sent home. The student has three days to obtain a doctor’s note with a diagnosis.

a. Obtains a written diagnosis from the doctor:

· Positive for COVID – contact tracing occurs and the student does not return to school.

· Negative for COVID – student returns to school after three days.

2. AP will follow-up to ensure the student received links as a “Classroom Guest.”


3. Counselor will notify teachers when the student is expected back on campus to resume regular F2F instruction.


**Classroom Guest – term for new online learners who transitioned to online learning from F2F due to quarantine or medical reason.
