Health-Related Updates from Nurse Brown

Our District Health Services Department remains engaged with our health governing authority to ensure we are providing the safest environment for our staff and scholars. In order to do that we need your help. EVERY scholar MUST have a mask to board the school bus and/or enter any school building or district facility. In order to halt the spread, we need all of our scholars to MASK UP!!! Below you will find updated guidance from the Ohio Board of Health as well as the District:


  • If your child is sick, please keep them home
  • Students will be sent home if they exhibit any symptoms associated with COVID
  • The school nurse must be contacted if a child is exposed to COVID

  • Anyone age 5 years and up can get vaccinated for COVID-19

Things we need to do to keep each other safe!

  • Mask up!

    • Make sure your student has an appropriate cloth or surgical mask to wear to school.

  • Distance!

    • Encourage keeping distance from people when possible so that we are not sharing germs.

  • Stay home when sick!

    • Even if your student hasn’t been tested or you don’t think it is COVID, no germs of any kind should be shared, especially now. What might be mild for one student or staff, could be severe and scary for another student or staff member.

    • If waiting for a test result because of symptoms, stay home.

    • Any of the following are concerning:

      • Sore throat, cough, fever, congestion, vomiting, diarrhea, body aches, headaches.
