COVID EXPOSURE, QUARANTINES & POSITIVE CASES: WHAT TO DO?

If your student has been around someone within 6 feet for 15 min. or more, who tested positive for Covid:

  1. They must stay home for 14 days after the last day of exposure.
  2. If your child was exposed AT SCHOOL, AND if both parties were wearing masks at time of exposure, AND they show no symptoms, they may get tested on day 7 (day 1 is the day AFTER they were exposed). If they test negative, they may return to school after that time. 
  3. Please let the school office know.

If your student OR ANYONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD has been tested for Covid:

  1. Please keep them home until you find out the test results.
  2. If they test positive, they must quarantine for 10 days, with the first day of quarantine starting the day AFTER symptoms began. They may not return to school until their symptoms have improved, have had no fever for 24 hours without medication, and it has been at least 10 days.
  3. Please let the school office know ASAP.

If someone in your household has tested positive for Covid:

  1. Your child must stay home for 14 days after the last day they’ve been around that person. If they start showing symptoms, please get them tested, and you can follow instructions above.
  2. Please let the school office know ASAP.
  3. If you are able to isolate the positive case from the rest of the household (no shared spaces, ie: kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom), then day 1 of quarantine is the day AFTER the last day of exposure to the positive person. If you are unable to isolate the person, then the 14 day quarantine begins the first day AFTER the positive person’s 10 days of illness.
