We hope your student is off to a healthy start of the 2022-23 school year. We encourage you to help keep our schools a healthy place for students to learn. There are a few key ways we can do this together:
Students who are sick should stay home, no matter what illness they have. Do not send your child to school if he or she is sick, has a fever, nausea/vomiting or other symptoms of illness. At a minimum, all students who are sick should remain home until they have been fever free for 24 hours without use of medications such as Acetaminophen (Tylenol) or Ibuprofen (Motrin). Please consult with your child’s School Nurse for specific guidance.
If your student has symptoms of COVID-19, please have them tested, either through your child’s
medical provider, at another test site, or with an at-home test. If your student tests positive for COVID-19, please keep them home and notify your child’s teacher or School Nurse of their positive test. We are at a much different place in the pandemic today than we were just a few months ago, with convenient access to free at-home tests, vaccines available for children, teens and adults, and masks, which are all part of a layered approach to COVID-19 safety. If you have questions about what actions you should take to protect your child, contact your child’s healthcare provider or School Nurse.
We are looking forward to this school year and working with you to ensure our school is a safe, healthy place for all students.
