There is NO SCHOOL Jan. 17th & Feb. 14th

COVID Protocols changed this past week...

First and foremost, please do NOT send your child to school if he/she is having any symptoms.

The 3 most recent changes include the length of time to quarantine, the length of time to isolate, and ways to avoid quarantine.

  • If COVID Positive- Isolate for at least five days. If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can return to school but must continue to wear a mask through the 10th day.
  • If a close contact- Quarantine for 5 days at home and then return to school if symptom free. You must be willing to wear a mask for 5 additional days. These 10 total days are based on the day of the close contact.
  • Test to stay- Students will test to stay for the first five days after the exposure, but will continue to wear a mask through the 10th day. If a student develops symptoms they will stay home at that time. Only school exposures can complete the test to stay program.
  • Students that are fully vaccinated or that have tested positive for COVID in the last 90 days will not have to quarantine UNLESS they have symptoms.
  • If both the positive student and close contact wear a mask, they will not have to quarantine.
