Proper face coverings must be worn inside all schools and district offices, and on all school buses, by all individuals, regardless of vaccination status.
If your child has COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are mild or seem unrelated to COVID-19, please do not send your child to school.
COVID-19 symptoms are: fever, fatigue/tiredness, muscle/body aches or pains, congestion, cough, runny nose, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, nausea/vomiting or diarrhea, headache, loss of taste or smell, rash, feeling sick or unwell in any way
Your child should stay home until they have a negative COVID-19 test, or no symptoms for 72 hours, no fever greater than 100.4F without fever-reducing medication, and no cough or shortness of breath.
A written note from the medical provider is required stating that the child is having unchanged symptoms of a chronic condition and does not need a COVID-19 test.
