COVID & Health Info

If there is a positive COVID case in your family, please let us know immediately! We will be working closely with JCPH and our partners at Children’s Hospital to let you know about any necessary quarantines. 

 

PLEASE SELF-SCREEN YOUR CHILD BEFORE THEY LEAVE FOR SCHOOL EACH DAY! DO NOT SEND your child with a fever above 100.4 degrees, ANY COVID symptom that we do not have documentation from a health care provider of as being allergy-related, such as cough or runny nose, will result in your student being sent home. This has not changed from last year! Your child must be fever-free and without any vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school.  If antibiotics are prescribed, they must be ON THEM for 24 hours before they return to school. If there is a COVID test that you are awaiting for anybody in your household, your child needs to be at home until it is back. 


Mask Hygiene

Please remember to keep those reusable masks clean and change out the disposable ones. It’s a good idea to have an extra one.  This will help keep us all healthy!

Seasonal Allergies Does your child have seasonal allergies that can cause COVID-like symptoms? It is extremely important that we get a letter from your doctor stating this! We must send children home with symptoms that are not documented.
