2023 – 2024 School Year

Updated: March 8, 2024

COVID Proto­col

    • Students are required to isolate for a minimum of 3 days follow­ing a posi­tive COVID test (day 0 is the day symp­toms started or the day they tested posi­tive, day 1 is the follow­ing day, etc.). After the 3 day isola­tion, students can return once they are:
      • Fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reduc­ing medica­tion (i.e., Tylenol or any medica­tion containing acetaminophen)
      • Symp­toms are mild and improving
      • AND
      • Feeling well enough to be at school.
    • They can be testing posi­tive upon return if they meet the previous criteria.
    • If your student was asymp­to­matic during the initial isola­tion period and devel­ops symp­toms later on, then the follow­ing will apply:
      • Students must isolate for a minimum of 24 hours from the day of symptom onset and they may return once they are:
        • Fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reduc­ing medica­tion (i.e., Tylenol or any medica­tion containing acetaminophen)
        • Symp­toms are mild and improving
        • AND
        • Feeling well enough to be at school.

Masking require­ments

  • If your student will be return­ing before day 11 (day 0 is the day symp­toms started or the day they tested posi­tive, day 1 is the follow­ing day, etc.), they must mask through day 10.
    • Unless they have tested nega­tive twice with 24 hours in between testing, then they do not have to mask after the second negative test.
