- Nasal congestion/runny nose (not due to other known causes/allergies) when in combination w/other symptoms
If your child is exhibiting any of the above symptoms please keep your child home and call your physician. You will be required to provide medical documentation upon the return to school.
Your student may return to school when the following are true:
- Your medical provider has determined a different illness then COVID-19 and cleared student to return (medical note must be provided to school), OR
- Your student has negative test results for COVID-19, no symptoms AND a note from their medical provider
PLEASE NOTE: If you should be notified that you are COVID positive or have been a close contact of a COVID positive individual please contact your physician and notify the school nurse promptly. Our School Nurses will work with you to determine dates if it is appropriate for a student to return to school.
