The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that people with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms.
District staff and students are expected to self-screen prior to reporting to school or work for a fever of 100.4 or more and/or other symptoms associated with COVID-19 prior to arrival at school each day. District staff and student(s) should not report to school/work if:
- They are sick
- They have a fever or other COVID-like symptoms,
- They are awaiting COVID-19 test results
- They have received a positive COVID-19 test result
If a student presents at school or during the school day develops a temperature of 100.4 and/or other COVID-like symptoms, regardless of vaccination status, the student will be sent home.
IF YOU BELIEVE YOU OR YOUR CHILD IS SICK
- Families should report a positive COVID-19 test result, or symptoms to their child’s school who can provide further instructions or guidance.
- A student who tests positive or is symptomatic regardless of vaccination status will be required to stay home for a time period based on current CDC guidelines. Families should be prepared to provide proof of their student’s positive test result, including a clinical or home test.
