COVID-19 Update - (New)
90-Day Period: For 90 days after a positive COVID or antigen test, a person does not need to re-quarantine after exposure. The antibody test does NOT apply – it must be a PCR or antigen test.
10 days + 14 days: If there is a positive case in a household that cannot completely isolate from everyone (with a separate bedroom/bathroom), household members need to stay home during the case’s 10 day isolation period and then they start their 14 day quarantine period. In these situations, we may have a staff person or student who is out for 24 days. We encourage testing for these families because a positive test would change this to a 10 day isolation period.
DO NOT FORGET TO SCREEN YOUR STUDENT REMINDER: (Repeat) Make sure to screen your child everyday, prior to coming to school! Here is the link for Screener. Your assistance is greatly appreciated!
