Return to School
After Illness Schools must follow CDC guidance for allowing a student or staff member to return to school after exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19.
The information pertains to anyone staying home for an illness and anyone
 sent home by the school.

To return to school after a COVID like illness students and staff must have at a minimum the following three: 

1. Documentation of evaluation and clearance to return to school/work by a healthcare provider 
2. Negative COVID-19 testing  and
3. Fever free for 24 hours without the fever reducing medicaiton and improvement of symptoms


*If COVID -19 positive, a release from isolation as required by DOH must be received by the school prior to the student returning.
