Welcome Back!

Welcome back students and parents! 
I have been busy updating immunization records. If I have reached out to you needing documentation of your child's shot records, please get that to me ASAP! 

We are all working together with the ever changing COVID-19 related issues. Parents and caregivers should be empowered to screen children for symptoms at home, prior to coming to school, and should be provided with a checklist that includes the following symptoms and exposure: 
• Fever or chills 
• Cough
 • Headache 
• Muscle aches 
• Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea 
• New loss of taste or smell 
• New runny nose or congestion 
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing 
• Sore throat 
• Close contact with a person with COVID-19 in the last 14 days
Students with symptoms should not attend school and parents should consult their healthcare provider and follow CDC considerations regarding their return to school. For students who are diagnosed with COVID-19, either by a laboratory test or based on their symptoms, return to school is permissible when the student is at least 10 days from symptom onset, has had three days with no fever and symptoms are improving. Return to school for children with an alternate diagnosis is at the discretion of their healthcare provider and/or the school nurse. Children with a known close contact with COVID-19 (or an adult with symptoms compatible with COVID-19) should stay home for 14 days from their last contact and until return to school is approved by the local health department in accordance with the CDC.

I am excited to see all the smiling faces returning to school and I am hoping that everyone of us stays healthy!
