If your child has been exposed to COVID-19, monitor them for symptoms for the following 10 days. He/she may continue to come to school as long as he/she remains symptom free. If he/she develops any symptom, he/she should stay home and be tested for COVID-19. Contact the school nurse for further guidance.

Guidance for COVID + individuals: COVID + individuals must remain out of school for a minimum of 5 days. Day 1 is the first full day of symptoms. He /she must be symptom free for 24 hours without the aid of medication before returning to school.
