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.

Our school is implementing a whole-school transformational process called the Leader in Me, which teaches 21st-century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.
Our school will be conducting surveys to learn more about key areas of strength and areas of needed growth in our school. In order for us to have a holistic picture of what is going on in our school, we are asking all full-time staff members, parents/guardians, and students in Grade 3 and up to participate.
If you decide to participate, you will be asked to complete a survey (without sharing your name or other identifying information) that will be available through the web link below. The survey is completely voluntary, but we do hope to get feedback from one member of every household.
The parent/guardian survey takes about 12 minutes to complete and will ask questions about your child and about his or her experience in our school. If you have more than one child attending the school, you will be asked to think about the oldest child's experiences as you answer questions related to his or her growth.
Please take this survey at this link. The deadline to complete the survey is Thursday, December 15th.
