Covid-19 Resources

Policies and Practices

  • We continue to monitor trends for respiratory infections and Covid-19 locally and nationally. Per Oregon Health Authority Covid-19 guidelines, if your student tests positive for Covid-19 and meets exclusion criteria they should remain at home until they are fever-free for 24 hours and other symptoms are very much improved. When they return, they should wear a well-fitting mask indoors for 10 days after the start of their symptoms.
  • We strongly recommend getting the flu shot and Covid-19 booster.
  • We strongly recommend wearing a mask when a child has mild respiratory symptoms for which our guidelines do not recommend exclusion.
  • Do not send an ill child to school. Please review the exclusion criteria for guidance on when a child should remain at home and return to school. Exclusion examples include:
    • temperature of 100.4℉ or greater
    • vomiting
    • diarrhea
    • new, unexplained rash
    • unusually sleepy or lethargic
    • active cough
    • any symptom(s) that prevent the student benefiting from or participating in all classroom activities (e.g. excessive runny nose)
  • Notify the school if your child is sick with a contagious disease (e.g. chickenpox, measles, scabies). We recommend reporting other diagnosable illnesses (e.g. flu, Covid-19, RSV) as this can help us track health trends at the school and communicate with families accordingly.
