CORONAVIRUS DISEASE 2019 (COVID-19) UPDATES & PROTOCOL

UPDATED TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 29, 2020 1:30PM

It is our aim to keep all students, staff, and families happy and healthy.  Due to the overlap between COVID-19 symptoms with other common illnesses it is difficult to determine when students should stay home from school.  Many symptoms of COVID-19 are also common in other childhood illnesses like the common cold, flu, or seasonal allergies.  The table below illustrates some overlap between the symptoms of COVID-19 and other common illnesses.

If children are not feeling well please keep them home from school until they are feeling well enough.  Students with MILD respiratory symptoms, such as a minor cough and/or runny nose may attend school if they do not have a fever present and have been fever free without the use of fever-reducing medications (such as Tylenol) for 48 hours. Our Daily Home Screening tool can be referred to when making a decision on whether or not to send your child to school.

Please review the Daily Home Screening for Students below.

Daily-Home-Screening-for-Students-Checklist

If the student answers YES to any questions in Section 1 but NO to any questions in Section 2, the student would need to stay home until symptom-free for 48 hours without fever reducing medications.

If the student answers YES to any questions in Section 1 and YES to any questions in Section 2 the student must be referred to a healthcare provider for further evaluation and possible testing.
