    Parents must screen students DAILY before sending to school for the following symptoms not normal for them:

    Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit

    Loss of taste or smell

    (It is recommended that you keep children who have any of the above symptoms home while symptomatic. It is also recommended that they be seen by their physician or get tested for COVID-19.)

    If a student is sent home by the nurse for the above symptoms (outside of their normal presentation) they will need to follow the re-entry criteria listed below.

    If a student develops symptoms at home that are not normal for them (including any FEVER greater than or equal to 100) and may be related to COVID, the student will stay home and follow the re-entry criteria below.

    If student develops symptoms at home that are normal for them and you feel are NOT related to COVID, they may return to school using the regular return to school criteia. See page 92-95 of Student/Parent Handbook

    Students may re-enter school when one of the following three options have been satisfied:

    RE-ENTRY CRITERIA: 

    Option 1: 10 calendar days have passed since symptoms first started AND 24 hours fever free without the use of medications AND symptoms have significantly improved.

    Option 2: Student is cleared by a medical professional with an alternate diagnosis ruling out COVID (ex. Asthma, Allergies, Strep etc.) 

    Option 3: Student tests negative for COVID-19
