Parents are requested to notify the campus when their student(s) will be absent because the student is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Parents are also asked to inform the campus if their student tests positive for COVID-19. Campus administrators are responsible for notifying Emergency Management and School Safety by completing and submitting an exposure form.
Generally, if a student is sent home because of a COVID-19 exposure or because they test positive, they will need to work with their campus and teachers to make up any missed work, as appropriate. Campus administrators will work closely with parents/guardians to ensure that students have the opportunity to make up missed work.
During the school day, campus staff is expected to monitor students for symptoms of COVID-19. Staff should immediately send any student experiencing symptoms for a clinical assessment by the school nurse. The campus is responsible for notifying Emergency Management and School Safety by completing and submitting an exposure form if symptoms are verified as COVID-19 or parents confirm a positive test result.
