Confirm a positive home test with an additional test taken 24 hours later. If the second test is negative, treat the symptoms of the illness (student must be fever free for 24 hours without the aid of fever reducing medication before returning to school) and contact the school nurse for guidance.
If the second test is positive, please keep your son home for 5 days using the following guidelines:
Day 1 is two days prior to either your son’s first test date or the first day of symptoms. Your son may return on Day 6 as long as he has been fever free for 24 hours without the aid of fever reducing medication and his symptoms have improved.
Masking on Days 6-10 is recommended but not mandatory. If your son has a cough or congestion, please have him wear a mask.
Please report your son’s absence using the SchoolPass app.
