Student COVID-19 Exposure Plan
Exposed to a Positive Person at School:
The child has been identified as having close contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19.
Students who have had close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID and are NOT exhibiting symptoms may return to school at the discretion of the parents/guardians, but the following guidelines are expected:
- If the student returns prior to 10 days from the time of contact, then daily symptom monitoring needs to occur, which includes taking the students temperature twice daily.
- If the student begins to show symptoms, then they will need to be off campus for 10 days starting from the day of exposure.
Students who have had close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID and ARE exhibiting symptoms may not return to school until they have fulfilled the following requirements:
- Student must be off campus for 10 days from the date of contact with the positive person.
- Student must have symptom improvement and be fever free for at least 24 hours with no medication to bring the fever down.
Exposed to a Positive Person in the Home:
- Students who have been exposed to someone who has tested positive to COVID-19 in the home are required to implement the 10-day guidelines or the 7-day guidelines with a negative test.
- The 7-day guidelines can only be used if the student is able to completely separate from the positive person the entire 7 days.
*If the health department has notified you that your child has to
quarantine or isolate, you are required to follow those directions,
as we cannot override those recommendations. *
