Parents are asked to review their child’s health status prior to sending their child(ren) to school each day. Students and staff members who are experiencing symptoms, or are sick, should remain at home.
Testing is strongly encouraged for people with symptoms of COVID-19 as soon as possible after symptoms begin. Individuals who are known to have been in proximity to infected individuals should monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and test.
Students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 are strongly recommended to isolate for 5 days at home and strongly recommended to wear a mask day 6 through 10 and immediately report the case to their school nurse.
Those with symptoms may resume attending school if they are fever free without fever reducing medicine for 24 hours and their symptoms are improving.
For those with symptoms, Day 1 is the first full day after symptom onset (Day 0 is the day of symptom onset). For those who had no symptoms, Day 0 is the day they were tested (not the day they received a positive test result) and Day 1 is the first full day following the day they were tested. Please note, we strongly recommend that these protocols are followed for the safety and well-being of all students and staff. Should there be community spread, these procedures could change.
Students who test positive will follow the same protocols for PE/recess and Athletics as they did last year. The school nurse will have more details.
Home instruction will be permitted when all the NYS and North Shore guidelines are met (10 consecutive days of absence).
