Anyone with Covid-like symptoms should stay home and get tested.
● Traditional symptoms include fever/chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, headache, loss of taste/smell, sore throat, congestion/runny nose, and nausea/vomiting/diarrhea.
● Omicron variant symptoms (most common current variant) include sore throat, congestions, runny nose, and cough (may develop later).
Individuals who test positive for Covid must isolate at home for 5 days. Day 1 is the day after symptom onset or a positive test. They can return to work/school on day 6 if their symptoms are improving but they must wear a tight fitting mask on days 6-10. Alternatively, if they take 2 rapid tests 48 hours apart starting on day 6 and both are negative, they can discontinue wearing the mask.
Individuals who are exposed to someone with Covid do not need to quarantine if they are asymptomatic; however, it is recommended that they wear a mask for 10 days.
Many times parents and guardians are not sure when to keep a child at home due to illness. For information about communicable diseases which can help guide you as you make this decision, go to this link.

Attention Newton Falls Community:
The district would like to announce that for the 2022-2023 school year, P-EBT Benefits will be provided to students who meeting the following criteria:
Students must be in preschool (pre K) or grades K-12, attending a school building that is participating in the National School Lunch Program, is qualified for free or reduced meals by a 2022-2023 free or reduced price household meal application, is directly certified, or is categorically eligible for free meals based on 2022-2023 documentation and meets at least one of the following scenarios:
The student does not receive free or reduced-price meals at the school because the school provides fully remote education but the school is not a fully virtual school.
The student does not receive free or reduced-price meals at the school every day because the school provides hybrid education (for example, a mix of in-person and remote instruction).
The student does not receive free or reduced-price meals at the school because the school operates at reduced hours during the day (for example, a student comes to the school building for only three hours per day with no meal service). The school can submit the count of reduced hour days with no meal service for each free or reduced-price student. If the school is providing meals to eat at school, the student is not eligible for P-EBT for these days.
The student does not receive free or reduced-price meals at school because the student is quarantined at home for COVID-19. Once one student quarantines due to COVID-19 for at least 5 consecutive school days, any free or reduced-price eligible student quarantining due to COVID-19 for any count of school days moving forward may be submitted for P-EBT.
Any combination of the above. An example is a school that started the school year providing fully remote learning and switched to hybrid or vice versa.
You can read more about the 2022-2023 P-EBT Benefits at this link.
The absence days due to COVID-19 begin when there is a student (or building) who has been out for at least five consecutive days due to COVID-19. This triggers the start date of the benefits for each building individually. The following are the start dates for each building:
Newton Falls Elementary: August 29, 2022
Newton Falls Middle School: September 2, 2022
Newton Falls Jr. High School: August 25, 2022
Newton Falls High School: August 26, 2022
To receive benefits for the given day, the absence must be recorded with the office that it is related to COVID-19. Any other absence, school holidays, or non-school days are not counted or eligible for P-EBT Benefits.
