Reporting Process for Employees
Reporting Positive COVID-19 Case OR Exposure to Positive Person
If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, OR if you have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, please do the following:
- OKCPS employees who work at a school building (with the exception of SNS staff) should report a positive COVID-19 test or exposure to your principal and/or your school’s contact tracer.
- OKCPS employees who work at the Clara Luper Center for Educational Services, the Operations Center, Student Support Services at Westwood should report a positive COVID-19 test or exposure by calling the district’s COVID-19 line, (405) 587-CV19*. SNS staff members and Guest Teachers should also use the CV19 line to report a positive COVID-19 test or exposure.
*The CV19 line should only be called to report a positive case of a staff member or exposure to a positive case. If you have general COVID-19 questions, please email email@example.com. It’s important that staff only use the CV19 line for these purposes to allow our contact tracing teams to respond as quickly as possible.
Reporting Process for Students
If your child is sick, has a fever or any other COVID like symptoms, please keep them home and contact the school for further guidance.
If someone in your household has COVID like symptoms and/or has received a positive COVID-19 test, please DO NOT send your child to school. This also includes the timeframe someone in the household might be waiting on results of a test. Keep your child home and contact the school to report this as a “close contact” exposure. The school will provide you with information about receiving instruction during a required isolation period based on the CDC guidelines OKCPS is following.
To report a positive case or exposure:
- Keep your child home until given next steps
- Call your child's school
The school nurse or school administrator will complete the Student Positive Notification Form. Contact tracing will occur if necessary. Someone from the District's COVID-19 command team or your child's principal will provide next steps and a return to campus date.
