To protect our School community, we are asking all parents to complete the following questionnaire daily prior to sending your child to school.

In the past 14 days, has your child:

  1. Been in contact with a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infected person in the last 14 days? 
  2. Has your child traveled or lived in an area with travel restrictions as noted below? 

If you answered yes to questions 1 or 2, please keep your child home and contact your physician and school nurse as soon as possible. 

  1. Has your child had one or more of the following symptoms in the last 14 days:
  • Body aches and/or chills
  • Significant fatigue (tired, exhausted)
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Significant sore throat
  • Loss of appetite
  • Chest congestion, frequent, harsh cough
  • Fever of 100.0 or higher-your child needs to stay home even if this is their only symptom.
  • Painful breathing or Shortness of breath (for a student with chronic allergy/asthmatic cough, a change in baseline)
  • Abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, nausea or vomiting not related to a chronic condition unexplained/undiagnosed rash
 
If you answered yes to any of these questions, please keep your child home and consult your physician and notify the school nurse as soon as possible.

Parents shall:

  • Check their child daily before sending him/her to school.
  • Keep their child home for  a fever of >100.00
  • If fever is your only symptom, you must be fever free for 48 hours without fever-reducing medication.  
  • Keep their child out of school for at least 10 days after symptoms began if COVID is suspected or symptoms of COVID are suspected. 
  • Symptoms must improve prior to returning to school.
  • Get a doctor’s note for an excluded/sick child to return to school for any non-COVID illness such as a bacterial infection
  • Either pick their child up in a timely manner or designate an emergency contact to do so if it is determined that the child has a fever or other symptoms of COVID
  • Call the school nurse if your child is kept home for any of the above symptoms so you can discuss how long your child needs to stay home
