If your child(ren) are not feeling well we ask you take their temperature prior to sending them to school.
Consult the guidelines below, in order that we prevent the spread of illness to other students, staff, and families.
When to stay home:
COVID-19 Policy Regarding Quarantines:
- We will communicate with families of students who are considered close contacts (in school settings) of individuals who test positive for COVID-19.
- Quarantining will continue to be recommended, but not required for close contacts of someone who has COVID-19. The school will not monitor quarantines.
- Those testing positive for COVID-19 or think/know they had/have COVID-19 are expected to quarantine per Marathon County Health Department guidelines.
- Students who show COVID-19 symptoms are expected to quarantine at home and not return until 24 hours after last symptoms are gone.
- If a school family has someone living at their house who has tested positive for COVID-19 and that person is unable to be in isolation, then their students are expected remain at home. Students who test positive are expected to abide by the quarantine restrictions determined by the Marathon County Health Department. Siblings of those who test positive may return when the one who tested positive is clear to return, provided none of them have had COVID-19 symptoms for at least 24 hours.
