Staff or students that have contracted the virus should contact the school immediately. They will not be identified to the rest of the school, per HIPAA rules.

Should a staff member or student test positive, school officials will notify parents of students who may have been exposed.

If a family member in a staff member’s household tests positive for COVID-10, they will not be allowed to return to work for 14 days or until a physician/health department clears them.

If a student has direct exposure to someone who has tested positive or is suspected of having COVID-19, parents are asked to keep everyone of school age home until a physician/health department clears them.
