COVID-19 Protocols 2023-24

  • In May 2023 COVID-19 was no longer considered a national public health emergency. This information was updated again in March of 2024 following updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control as it relates to COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses. 

     

    Are you sick? If sick, you will be advised to STAY HOME, away from others, until it has been at least 24 hours after symptoms begin to improve AND you have not had a fever of 100.4 or above without the use of fever-reducing medication.

     

    Possibly COVID? If you are feeling symptoms of COVID-19, we recommend you test and stay at home until you receive your results. Note: The school district no longer provides at-home test kits.

     

    Are you COVID positive? As stated above, you will be advised to STAY HOME, away from others, until it has been at least 24 hours after symptoms begin to improve AND you have not had a fever of 100.4 or above without the use of fever-reducing medication. After that, you will be advised to wear a mask for five more days.

    • The previous guidance, no longer in effect, was that you would be advised to stay home for five straight days after the start of symptoms or a positive COVID-19 test.

     

    Bottom line: We rely on staff, students and families to follow these recommendations and make good choices in order to maintain the healthiest possible learning environments for all.
