Exposed How to Quarantine

  • Effective October 14, 2021, the district will suspend traditional contact tracing measures and the practice of student quarantine due to close contact within the classroom. Parents/guardians will be notified if a confirmed positive case was present in one or more of their student's classrooms, when that positive case was infectious. Parents/guardians are encouraged to continue to take precautions and monitor their children for COVID-19-like symptoms, keeping students home when symptomatic. 

    School Based Exposure - These are individuals who were identified as an exposure to a positive individual in the classroom setting. 

    Community and Household Exposures - For community exposures (sleepovers, club sports, weddings, funerals, etc.) or household exposures (someone in your household tests positive) please utilize the following resource to calculate your quarantine period and notify your child's school of absence.
