From Nurse Patty


    • If you call a student in as sick, the student will have to stay home for 10 days unless you bring in a doctor’s note saying the student’s illness was not COVID related, or by showing proof of a negative COVID test
    • If your child has any of the COVID symptoms do not send them to school. These include:
      • Fever (defined as a temperature over 100.3F)
      • New cough
      • New trouble breathing or shortness of breath 
      • Chills
      • Night sweats
      • Sore throat
      • Body aches
      • Muscle aches
      • Joint pain
      • Loss of taste or smell
      • Headache
      • Confusion
      • Vomiting
      • Diarrhea
      • Abdominal pain
    • When to seek urgent medical care:
      • Difficulty breathing
      • Not eating or drinking
      • Difficulty waking or staying awake
    • Any student who has one or more symptoms of COVID will be sent home. Parents are expected to pick up their child immediately.
    • If your child is sent home, you have 3 options:
      • Get a note from a physician stating that the symptom or symptoms are not COVID related
      • Have your child get a COVID test
      • Do nothing and keep your child home for 10 days
        • They can return after that once they are symptom free with no fever for 24 hours without the use of medication
    • If your child travels out of state, they will have to stay home until they have had 2 negative COVID tests 7-14 days apart and no symptoms.
