Per ODH orders, schools are required to report and notify parents/guardians and local health departments when a student, teacher, staff member, or coach test positive for COVID-19. The order also states that parents and guardians are encouraged to notify their school no later than 24 hours after receiving a confirmed diagnosis.
We intend to communicate with you via emailed letters/text, and/or automated phone calls when there is a positive case of COVID-19 in your child's school, classroom, bus, or extra-curricular program.
If your child was “exposed” (within 6 feet of a positive COVID-19 individual for a total of 15 minutes without a masks) and needs quarantined, you will receive notification from the school.
Remember, being quarantined does not indicate that a student has been infected. It is the means in which we protect others from spreading the virus.
We continue to remind our families to conduct daily health screenings and your child should stay if they show any symptoms. This only works if we err on the side of caution and follow CDC, ODH, and FDH guidelines. Those with symptoms should stay home for 10 days from the onset of symptoms, be fever free for 24 hours (without medication), and all symptoms should be improving before returning to school.
