Please see the information below, which details what to do if you (or your student) are feeling sick or believe you (or your student) may have been exposed to a COVID-positive individual. Please reach out to school officials with any questions.

If you or your student have tested positive for COVID-19, please see the following options:

  • Must isolate for 5 days.

  • Any staff/student that has tested positive may NOT test out of isolation.

  • Following day 5, positive patients that are fever free for at least 24 hours without fever reducing medication may return to school. It is highly likely that cold-like symptoms, including cough, may persist beyond day 10 of isolation, this is okay.

A close contact is defined as:

  • Someone who's been in proximity (6ft or closer) to a positive patient for a cumulative period of time equal to 15 minutes or greater.

  • Exposure can occur any time during the 10 day isolation period and the 2 days prior. A positive case is considered contagious 2 days prior to onset of symptoms or a positive test result, whichever is first. 

    • So, if person A gets covid on the 5th of the month (either by test or symptoms that are later confirmed by test), then a close contact would be anyone who has been within 6 feet for a cumulative time period of 15 minutes or more from the 3rd on. 

    • The last day of contact with the positive case is day 0 (zero) for close contacts in starting their quarantine. 

    • So, person B could have been around the positive case on the 3rd and person C could have been around the positive case on the 5th. They would both be close contacts but they would have different quarantine dates. Person B would start day 1 of quarantine on the 4th and person C would start day 1 of quarantine on the 6th.

    • In addition, if a family member cannot quarantine away from a positive case, the quarantine starts on day 11 after the positive case has finished the isolation period. (This could very well mean that a student may need to be out of school for up to 20+ days).

If you or your student have been notified by a public health official that you are a Close Contact, please see the following options:

  • Option 1: Quarantine for 5 days. Return to school on day 6, no restrictions

  • Test to Stay Option: Test twice weekly, remain in school for duration of quarantine period (5 days) so long as tests are negative.

If your student will need to quarantine outside of school...

  • You may sign out a Chromebook and AT&T Mifi device at the main office for the duration of quarantine. Both devices are to be returned to main office when student returns to school.

  • Teachers in grades K-8 will communicate directly with parents to inform them of expectations for attending school remotely.

  • Students in grades 9-12 - attendance in online class meetings is required and students will be regularly assessed and graded, just as in their face-to-face classrooms.
