    As guidance and information continues to be updated, we will do our best to keep you abreast of all changes. 

    As of September 8, 2020 the following guidelines are in effect for all school personnel and students related to COVID-19 exposure.

    Anyone who has been exposed to someone with a positive case of COVID-19 is required to self-quarantine for a period of 14 days following the date of the last known exposure. A negative COVID test is no longer utilized as a return to school option.  Anyone with exposure is unable to return to school until they have satisfied the 14-day quarantine period.  As stated by the CDC:  “To be considered exposed to COVID-19, you have to have had close contact with someone with COVID-19. Close contact includes:

    • Living with a person who has COVID-19
    • Providing care for a person who has COVID-19
    • Being within 6 feet of a person with COVID-19 for 15 minutes or more, or
    • Having exposure to respiratory secretions from a person with COVID-19 (e.g., being coughed or sneezed on, sharing a drinking glass or utensils, kissing)

    A person with COVID-19 is considered to be contagious starting from 2 days before they became sick (or 2 days before they tested positive if they never had symptoms) until they meet the criteria to discontinue isolation.

    Please continue to utilize the Daily Symptom Monitoring Tool for your student every day, prior to attending school.
