COVID 19 Prevention

Keep Students Home When Sick
Each day before school, parents should screen their children for symptoms of illness and check temperature.
When to stay home from school:
• symptoms of illness are present
• fever greater than 100° F
• recent close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19
If your child needs to stay home due to illness, please notify the school.
Return to school must be coordinated through the school Health Office.
School Staff to Monitor for Illness
School staff will monitor for signs/symptoms of illness throughout the day. If illness is suspected, students will be referred to the Health Office. If exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, student will wait in isolation with continued supervision until picked up by an authorized adult. It is extremely important that students be picked up as quickly as possible to avoid prolonged exposure and to seek prompt medical care if needed. Parents should ensure that their child’s emergency contacts are up to date in the event that they are unavailable. Emergency contacts are updated yearly through the Online Registration process. In case of emergency, 911 will be called.
Promote Healthy Hygiene Practices
1. Wash hands often, for at least 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not accessible. T
his should take place when:
        a. arriving and leaving home and school
        b. before and after eating
        c. before and after using the restroom
        d. after coughing, sneezing, or blowing nose
        e. after playing outside
        f. before and after using shared surfaces or items
        g. after having close contact with others
3. Cough or sneeze into a tissue or their elbow. Used tissues should immediately be thrown into the trash.
4. Wear cloth face coverings when recommended.* Cloth face coverings are most essential in settings where physical distancing cannot easily be maintained, such as school buses or other settings where space may be insufficient. It is important to wear or remove face coverings correctly. Wash your hands after handling or touching a used face covering. Cloth face coverings should be washed after each use.
