Illness Policy

September 6, 2023

 

Dear Parents,

We ask that you please assess your student’s health each morning before sending them to school.  It will be better for your family and the school for the student to stay home rather than the student being sent home.  Please err on the side of caution.

In the instance of a fever - the student will need to stay home until they are fever free for 24 hours - without fever reducing medications. A temperature of over 100 degrees is considered a fever.

The symptoms a student could be sent home for include:

  • Fever or chills

  • Diarrhea

  • Nausea or vomiting

If a student presents with a combination of the following symptoms- we will ask the student be taken home :

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Cough

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

COVID Guidelines 23-24 School Year

You can find the CDC document HERE.

For guidance at our schools, with regards to students or family members testing positive for COVID, please consider the following :

If a student is positive for COVID – the student will quarantine for 5 days, then mask around others for the next 5 days.

If a family member, or other direct contact, is positive the student will mask for 10 days. After 5 days if the student tests negative they continue to mask for 5 more days OR if the student tests positive they follow the “if positive” guidelines directly above.

Days are measured as calendar days, not school days.

Direct contact is considered being, within 6 feet for a period of 15 minutes or longer, with someone who has symptoms and/or a positive Covid test.

The CDC has an Isolation & Exposure Calculator HERE on their website, cdc.gov.  This is a handy tool and takes the guesswork out of determining what to do.

As with other illnesses- please alert the office if you have a person in your household who has tested positive.
