UPDATED COVID PROCEDURE
Sadly, COVID is still in our community. We would like to keep it at bay as much as we can. The symptoms seem to be cold-like symptoms – congestion, sore throat, headache and body aches with or without a fever. Our policy at school is if a student tests positive for Covid the parent needs to notify the nurse by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). She will arrange for a return date (CDC states 5 days after onset of symptoms) and initiate virtual learning. While quarantining due to a positive result, Students are expected to log in to the class virtual meetings as attendance therein will be recorded. If your son is too sick and unable to login in during the early days of infection, please email Mrs. Auger (email@example.com) each morning. Also, if unable to login in the early days of infection, it is the student’s responsibility to email his teachers for missed assignments each day that he doesn’t attend a class Google <eets.
