COVID-19 Information

All students or parents of students will answer the COVID-19 screening question daily prior to entry to the building. Temperatures will be taken for all individuals as they enter the building. A student or individual who registers 100.0 as a temperature will be directed aside for 5-10 minutes to allow a cooling period. If the temperature still registers 100.0 or greater, students will be placed in a symptomatic holding area to wait while the parent is called to come for them.

Students in grades 1-12 will be required to wear a mask. The school environment is safest and the spread of the virus most controlled when all individuals wear a mask, especially at times when remaining 6 feet from others is difficult.  Parents who wish to request a medical exemption allowing their child to attend in-person school without a mask must obtain the exemption from their medical provider- Medical Doctor, Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Physician’s Assistant, or Advanced Practice Registered Nurse- and it must state the reason for the exemption.

Actions taken if a person is positive or shows symptoms of COVID-19:

  1. Any person, whether student, teacher, or staff who:
    1. Tests positive for COVID-19 with a laboratory test
    2. Experiences symptoms of COVID-19
      1. Positive individual
        1. Must remain at home in self-isolation for a minimum of 10 days
        2. May return at the end of 10 days if:
          1. Fever free without the use of fever reducing medication for at least 24 hours
          2. And symptoms of COVID-19 have improved
      2. Symptomatic individual
        1. Must remain at home in self-isolation for a minimum of 10 days
        2. May return at the end of 10 days if:
          1. Fever free without the use of fever reducing medication for at least 24 hours
          2. And symptoms of COVID-19 have improved
        3. If the symptomatic individual wishes to return to school or work prior to the 10-day period above:
          1. They must present a written diagnosis of another cause for the symptoms from a medical provider—MD, OD, PA, or APN.
  2. Contacts of the positive person must self-isolate at home for 14 days from the last contact day with the positive person.
    1. Testing does not release this person because the incubation period of the virus is 14 days
    2. The entire 14-day period must pass before this person may return to work or school
  3. Students who are positive, have symptoms, or are contacts must be excluded from school for the required number of days
    1. Secondary—the nurse will prepare a list in collaboration with the campus administrative team, and the attendance clerk will record the student as absent for the required exclusion period
      1. If a student reports to school during the required exclusion period, they will be directed to the office/clinic
      2. If the student was merely symptomatic and presents the required healthcare evaluation or testing results, they will be returned to class
      3. Students who are contacts, positive, or symptomatic and do not present the required documents will be placed in the designated area to await parent pick-up, and the parent will be notified to pick them up
  4. All staff, students, and families must be notified that a person tested positive for COVID-19, student confidentiality must be maintained.

    Symptoms of COVID-19

    Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit

    Loss of taste or smell


    Difficulty breathing

    Shortness of breath




    Sore throat

    Congestion or runny nose

    Shaking or exaggerated shivering

    Significant muscle pain or ache


    Nausea or vomiting


    Does a negative test change the self-isolation?  No. Contacts must remain in isolation for the full 14 days due to the incubation period of the virus. 

    Do classmates of a sibling of a positive student also need to be sent home? No, they are contacts of a contact unless the sibling also tests positive. The sibling does have to isolate for 14 days as a household member of a positive person.

    Does wearing a face covering change who is a contact? No. The definition of contact does not change if the person was wearing a face covering.

    If the students were moving around the room, and may not have been 6 feet apart all the time, how do we determine contacts? If the students were moving around the room, or it is not possible to confirm they were 6 feet apart, they are contacts.
