Covid symptoms include the
Shortness of breath or
Muscle or body
New loss of taste or
Congestion or runny
We recognize that many of these
symptoms are the same as the common cold. If you child is experiencing any of these symptoms, we ask that you keep your child home for the day and go to the doctor. The doctor can determine whether a
Covid test is necessary. We also request that you then keep your child home until he or she is symptom free.
If one of our students has an
exposed sibling who is at home under quarantine, then we ask that our student also stay home for five days until the sibling tests negavitve for Covid.
