General Health Guidelines for 2022-2023 School Year:

-If you are sick, stay home.

-If you do test positive, isolate 5 days; upon your return, wear a mask* for 5 days when indoors or on a bus.

-If minimal symptoms develop during the school day or a parent sends a student to school with minimal symptoms

(but student feels well), school nurses will have the student wear a mask* when indoors or on a bus until symptoms

are gone.

-We will no longer be tracking return dates for positive cases or exposures.

-We encourage you to check in with your doctor for guidance; we can also answer questions or provide clarification

when needed.

-Childhood immunizations remain mandated and vaccinations for COVID and flu are encouraged.

-Close contacts will no longer be required to quarantine due to exposure to COVID; if exposed to a positive covid

case, you should mask* for 11 days when indoors or on a bus; if you develop symptoms stay home and get tested.

-Parents will still need to account for all their students’ absences.

-Masking is optional unless otherwise stated *.

-These guidelines are subject to change based upon CDC recommendations.

County-specific CDC guidelines are updated weekly, and can be found at - https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/yourhealth/covid-by-county.html
