If a student feels well and has no symptoms, he or she may fully participate in school.
If a student has symptoms, he or she must stay home. A student may return with a doctor's note, and when they are symptom-free for 24 hours. We encourage families to speak to their doctor about COVID testing.
If a student is awaiting test results, he or she must quarantine until they receive a negative COVID test result (the exception is in the case of significant exposure).
If a student receives a positive test result, he or she must quarantine for ten days. A student may only return to school after being symptom-free for 24 hours after the ten days.
If a student has had significant exposure to someone who tests positive for COVID-19 (was within six feet for 15 minutes or more without a mask on), he or she must quarantine for 14 days. Even a negative test result in this scenario does not allow a student to return earlier.
Students must have a doctor's note stating he or she is fine to return to school. The student must give this letter to Susan Snyder before returning to school.
If a student or adult tests positive, the school will contact the local county public health department of the student's residence. The health department will contact any persons that need to quarantine at home. Students quarantined at home will still be able to participate in class remotely during the school day.
The health department does not require testing of all students.
We will notify parents of any positive cases in the school.
A short-term closure of one or more days may be necessary to clean and disinfect the building, depending on the public health department's recommendation.
