Student with positive COVID-19 test AND symptoms: 10 days starting with the first day of illness or symptoms.
Student testing positive with COVID-19, but WITHOUT symptoms: 10 days from the day of testing.
Student with exposure: The COVID-19 Task Force will evaluate on an individual basis and communicate quarantine time and dates as needed.
Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms. People in quarantine should stay home, separate themselves from others, monitor their health, and follow directions from their state or local health department. (per CDC)
Elementary: Virtual live class instruction will be available for primary topics such as ELA, Reading and Math. Your child’s teacher will be in direct contact with you to set this up as early as possible upon your child needing to be absent. Of note, your child is expected to maintain classwork while he/she is ‘well’ at home. A child that has symptoms or is sick with COVID-19 will be expected to catch up upon cessation of symptoms and when wellness is achieved (just as with any other illness).
Middle and High School: Distance Learning will be either live via Google Meets or recorded, the teacher will give direction via Google Classroom regarding how the class will be provided. Your child already operates in each class using Google Classroom and will be familiar with utilizing this method for turning in work, communicating with teachers and keeping up with class assignments. Of note, your child is expected to maintain classwork while he/she is ‘well’ at home. A child that has symptoms or is sick with COVID-19 will be expected to catch up upon cessation of symptoms and when wellness is achieved (just as with any other illness).
