COVID Response Plan (as of 11-10-21)
- Masks are no longer mandated but staff/students are strongly encouraged to wear them
- Masking on school transportation will continue as per federal law
- Current guidelines for identifying exposure will remain the same
- Parents may choose one of the following options if students are exposed to a positive case:
Traditional quarantine: 10 days at home.
Alternative: Close contacts, regardless of vaccination or masking status, may remain in the classroom environment if the parents/guardians and student agree to the following:
- The student wears a mask for 10 days after their last date of exposure;
- The parent/guardian will monitor daily for symptoms of COVID-19;
- The student will isolate and get tested if symptoms associated with COVID-19 appear, regardless of the severity of the symptoms.
Your student may discontinue these procedures after seven days if they remain symptom free and test negative between days five to seven after exposure.
Guidelines for sports and all other extracurricular activities:
Close contacts may continue to participate in sports and other extracurricular activities if the parent/guardian and student agree to the following:
- When participating in sports or activities, the student will wear a mask when able. (This includes all school activities, transportation, locker room, standing on the sidelines; and when anytime the mask will not interfere with breathing, the activity, or create a safety hazard.)
- The student must test negative on initial notification of exposure to COVID-19 (test must be performed within 24 hours of notification to be eligible for participation).
The student will test again between days five and seven after exposure (if negative, the student can
discontinue procedures on day eight.
