If your student has tested negative but still experiencing symptoms such as fever, the student must stay home for 24 hours and remain fever free without the help of medication. If your student has tested positive for covid 19 please inform our health aide Mary Ordillano at mordillano@harmontyx.org and provide her with the date your student has tested positive and the last time they attended school. Although CDC is recommending 5 days of quarantine, Harmony Public schools is still requiring 10 days of quarantine from the date your student has tested positive. Positive test results must be provided to our attendance clerk to excuse the 10 days.
