Below are some reminders for all that will assist in our efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus. Thank you for your support!
- Do not come to school if you have any of the following symptoms:
• 100.4 or higher fever,
• chills, muscle or body aches, fatigue, headache, sore
• throat, lower respiratory illness (cough, shortness of
• breath or difficulty breathing), loss of taste or smell,
• congested/runny nose, and diarrhea.
- You may return to school when you have been symptom and fever free for 72 hours.
- Wear your mask and maintain social distancing both in the public and at school.
- If you are in quarantine, do not leave your home until the quarantine has been lifted.
- A negative test result does not allow your quarantine time to shorten or end before the required 14 days.
- What should I do if I am in quarantine for exposure to a case?
While at home:
• Monitor your symptoms. Watch for fever, cough or trouble breathing. If symptoms develop during the 14-day quarantine period, please notify your local health department.
• If you become ill and need to seek medical attention: Before seeking care, call your healthcare provider and tell them that you have recently traveled or that you have been otherwise exposed to COVID-19.
• People under quarantine should consider wearing a facemask while at home because both asymptomatic and symptomatic people can spread the virus and wearing a facemask may help protect the people you live with.
• If possible, separate yourself from other people in your home. Stay in a different room from others and use a separate bathroom, if available.
• Cough or sneeze into the fold of your elbow. Alternatively, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60-95% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.
• Clean all “high-touch” surfaces every day. High touch surfaces include counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables. Also, clean any surfaces that may have blood, stool, or body fluids on them. Use a household cleaning spray or wipe, according to the label instructions.
