• Students (and their parents), will be educated on symptoms of COVID-19 and the importance of not coming to school if symptomatic. If your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms, you will be contacted and/or required to pick up your child. Your child must be symptom free (without the use of medication) for 24 hours before returning to school.  

     

    • Fever (100.4 or above)
    • Cough
    • Sore throat
    • Shortness of breath
    • Fatigue
    • Diarrhea or vomiting
    • Runny nose
    • Body/muscle aches
    • Loss of taste or smell

     

    Morning health screenings will take place at the beginning of each school day. The following questions will be asked:

     

    Do you feel sick? 

    Do you have a fever (100.4 or higher)?

    Do you have a cough? 

    Do you have shortness of breath or difficulty breathing? 

    Do you have chills? 

    Do you have a sore throat? 

    Do you have muscle aches/pains? 

    Do you have a new loss of smell or taste? 

    Have you or a close contact been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days?

     

    If one or more of the following symptoms is present, the student will be sent to the school nurse for immediate in-person evaluation. The school nurse will contact parents and determine the appropriate next steps. If the student is sent home, they must NOT attempt to enter the bus/school building until 24 hours after symptoms subside. They will be encouraged to seek testing and/or call their primary care physician.

     

    Parents must be prompt when picking up their child, as we must keep COVID-19 exposure to a minimum. Please check in with the front office, and a staff member will direct you to "Clinic C" to pick up your child.

     

    Please contact the school nurse if your child or a household member is positive for COVID-19 or awaiting test results.
