QUARANTINE INFORMATION

With guidance from our local Health Department and the Ohio Board of Health we've established the following procedure:

Medical research suggests that a person with COVID-19 may be contagious 48 to 72 hours before starting to experience symptoms.  The rule for the Ohio Department of Health is that anyone that is within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes for up to two days prior to the patient experiencing symptoms.  For example if a student leaves school on Thursday at 11:00am, anyone that has been within 6 feet for 15 minutes of more from Tuesday on, must quarantine. 

This includes all school events, including athletics and extra-curricular activities. Unfortunately, due to regulations from the Department of Health, even if your child is tested and the test results are negative, they may not return to school.

We’ve determined that your child must be quarantined using seating charts.  All students that were within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more of student, who has contracted Covid, must be quarantined.  The following information was updated in December.

It is anticipated that you will need to be quarantined for at least 14 days, in order to verify whether or not you have a communicable disease. Please be advised that the end date of your quarantine may be extended if you develop symptoms, in which a self-isolation may then be required.


An option for a shorter duration of a 10 day Quarantine period is permitted provided symptoms have not developed. 

  

A further reduced duration of your quarantine can end after Day 7 if a negative diagnostic test is received and if no symptoms were reported during daily monitoring. The specimen for testing cannot be collected any earlier than day 5 or later after last exposure. The quarantine cannot be discontinued any earlier than Day 7 with meeting the above criteria. It is your responsibility to show a negative test result and this Notice of Self-Quarantine to return to school earlier than the 10 day estimated release date.


The student that is quarantined is the only person in your household that has been in close contact with the person who has tested positive for the coronavirus.  Everyone else in your house may attend school and work, as appropriate.

Your child’s teachers will be informed of your child’s absence from school.  They will contact them with school related information via email and google classroom.   

We will make arrangement for books and materials may be picked up from school.

Our nurses and administrators will be happy to answer any questions that pop up.  Please do not hesitate to ask.
