Maple Ridge Updates

November 23, 2020

So Thankful For You!

At this time of year we want to express gratitude for all of your efforts to support our school. From getting students to school on time each day with their mask ready to learn to working on at home assignments during what seems like an endless 2 weeks of quarantine, we appreciate all of your hard work. We are so excited that we have been successfully in person for over a term and recognize that we and our students have lots of work to do. We appreciate all that you do to help your students from home on their learning journey!

Thanks for sending your student with a clean mask and water bottle so they are ready to stay in person learning! Please be advised that all grade levels have online information and assignments for students unable to attend in person each day.

COVID Restrictions and Precautions

Our elementary students are doing awesome!

Thank you for supporting our efforts to stay IN PERSON! The majority of students are coming with a clean mask daily and do a great job wearing them correctly throughout the day.

Some important quarantine updates to be aware of:

Low Risk Test and Return**

A student, teacher, or staff member who was exposed at school to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 may return to work at a school or in-person learning if he or she meets ALL of the following:

  1. The school verifies the student, teacher or staff member who was exposed and the person who tested positive were both wearing a face mask as defined by the State Public Health Order on masks in schools.
  2. The quarantined student, teacher, or staff member has a negative COVID-19 test result (must be a PCR or antigen test, not an antibody test). The test result must be from at least 7 days after the last exposure to the person who tested positive.
  3. The student, teacher, or staff member does not have symptoms of COVID-19.

The Low Risk Test and Return protocol does not apply to students, teachers, staff, or settings that are exempt from the State Public Health Order on masks in schools.

If the student, teacher, or staff member who was exposed meets ALL three criteria he or she may return to work, school or related activities, if the employee or the parents of the student choose. If the person does not meet ALL three criteria or chooses not to get tested, he or she should quarantine at home for 14 days from the last day of exposure.

Anyone who has been exposed to COVID-19 and comes back to school must continue to watch for symptoms. If employees or students get symptoms, they should isolate at home and call their healthcare provider. These guidelines only apply to exposures that occur at school.

**This only applies to masks and not face shields so please help your student be wearing a mask each day when they are unable to maintain a 6 foot distance or will be by someone for longer than 15 minutes !**
