Notify Your Child's School
Send an email to the school's Health Office AND the child's teacher(s) to notify them that your child has tested positive for COVID-19.
Find contact information for your school's health and attendance offices
Report your child's absence from school to the school Attendance Office. NOTE: You only need to submit the absence once for the entire time your child is out due to COVID.
(Preferred method) Use the SchoolPass app. Be sure to include the reason for the absence as a positive COVID-19 test result in the comments section.
Call the Attendance Line at your child's school. Please include your child's first and last name, spelling of the last name, grade, reason for absence and a return phone number.
Isolate At Home
Starting with the onset of symptoms or on the day an individual tests positive for COVID (this is considered Day 0), they will be required to isolate at home for 5 full days.
- If they have no symptoms at the end of 5 days they can return to normal activities on Day 6, but they must wear a mask at all times for at least 5 more days
- If they have symptoms after 5 days, they must stay home until they are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and other symptoms have improved. At that time they can start the 5 days of wearing a mask at all times
- If you are unable to wear a mask when around others, you should continue to isolate for a full 10 days.
- If you were asymptomatic initially, and then begin to have symptoms, you should isolate for 5 days from the start of symptoms.
If someone in your household has a confirmed case of COVID-19, you should do your best to limit their exposure to others. It is recommended to wear a mask and get tested.
Note about missed assignments
Class assignments are available on Schoology and Seesaw or from a teacher, however, students are not expected to keep up with school work when they are out sick or on quarantine. As with any excused absence from school, students will be provided time to make-up missed assignments after returning to school.
