If Your Student is Sick Please Keep Them Home
Staying home when you are sick is one of our best ways to fight COVID-19. Keeping sick children and children who are exposed to COVID-19 away from others helps stop the spread of the virus to other children, staff, and the surrounding community. When a student comes to school with symptoms and then tests positive for COVID-19 it is likely that many students will have to be quarantined. Parents are asked to monitor their child for symptoms, and take their temperature every single school day. Common symptoms include fever/chills, cough, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea.
