When to Keep Your Child Home
Students should not come to school if they have any COVID-19 symptoms, regardless of whether they are vaccinated. Symptoms can appear 2-14 days after an exposure. At present, the CDC identifies the symptoms listed below. Please note this is an update from last year in which symptoms were categorized. If your child has one of these symptoms, you should keep your child home from school.
- Fever (Oral > 100.4°F, Axillary/Temporal > 99.5°F) or chills
- Shortness or breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomitting
By following these guidelines, you will protect not only the health of your student but the health of his, her or other classmates and school staff as well!
