Parents and guardians can use the following symptom checklists to determine when to keep their child at home
Any student or staff diagnosed with COVID-19 or who is a close contact of a COVID-19 case should not go to school and should isolate or quarantine according to public health recommendations.
These lists refer only to new symptoms or a change in usual symptoms. A student/ staff should not be kept home for usual symptoms they experience due to a chronic condition unless they are worse than usual.
If any of the following symptoms are present, keep the child at home/ stay at home, inform the school of symptoms, and reach out to a health care provider about COVID-19 testing and next steps for treatment.
- Feeling feverish, having chills, or temperature 100.4℉ or higher.
- New or unexplained persistent cough.
- Shortness of breath.
- Difficulty breathing.
- Loss of taste or smell.
By taking extra precautions, we will continue to keep everyone in the school environment safe and healthy and will be able to continue to learn in-person!!!
