It’s important for you to know:
- If a child has chills, painful swallowing, stuffy nose, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, gastro issues, loss of smell or taste, pink eye… they must remain home until their symptoms resolve. After they are feeling better they are welcome to return to school.
- For fever, cough, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat – students are legally required to isolate for 10 days from the start of symptoms. Now there is a way to shorten this time… have a negative test. If a child is tested and it returns negative they are welcome back into school once they’re feeling better. So no test = at least 10 days. Negative test = feeling better, come back to school.
