COVID-19 Policies for the 2022-2023 School Year
I hope this finds you well and enjoying a wonderful summer. COVID-19 continues to be a part of our daily lives and our safety team met to determine how we can best keep our community safe while providing in person instruction. Thankfully, the COVID-19 vaccine is available to all and while we will not require a vaccine, we strongly encourage all members of our community to take this step. Please upload your child’s COVID-19 vaccine with their other health forms prior to the start of the year.
In order to stop the spread of the virus here at school, we will continue with surface cleaning and hand washing protocols. We will also follow the policy outlined below for confirmed cases of the virus.
- Any community member who has tested positive for COVID-19 may return to school 5 days after the positive test as long as their symptoms have resolved.
- When a community member returns from a positive case, they must mask indoors for 5 additional days.
- Any community member who has had a close contact with a positive case of COVID-19 must mask while indoors at school for five days. Exposed individuals should test on day 5 or at any time they experience symptoms.
- Any community member who has a household member who has tested positive for COVID-19 must mask while indoors at school for a minimum of 10 days. Exposed individuals should test on days 5 and 7 or at any time they experience symptoms.
We do not anticipate the need for all school masking this fall, but we will continue to monitor the information and make decisions to best serve our students. If you choose to have your child mask while at school, we will do our best to see that they wear their mask properly. Please send additional masks in their bag so they can change out as needed.
