If your student is identified as a “close contact” and needs to quarantine due to exposure to COVID-19 in your household, at school, or in the community, he/she MUST complete a 14-day quarantine. This is due to the fact that illness may occur anywhere between 2-14 days after exposure to COVID-19. This time period could be longer if your student begins to exhibit symptoms/becomes ill.
Quarantine for the full 14 days is REQUIRED even if your student is without symptoms and even if test results are negative. Please do NOT send your student to school until this time period has passed.
Day 1 of quarantine starts on the day after exposure to COVID-19. If a student returns to school or any school-related event before the quarantine time period has been completed, the student’s parent/guardian will be called immediately to come pick-up the student.
