Leesville Road High School COVID-19 Guidance (repeat)

With the return to daily in-person instruction, the following guidance provides us a framework to ensure that we remain in school. Guidance is also provided on how students will continue to engage in learning in the event they are required to quarantine due to a confirmed case or exposure to a confirmed case of COVID-19.


  • Practice the 3w’s
  • Always wear your masks when inside the building and not eating during lunch. (Students can talk during lunch but must have their masks on.)
  • Wash and sanitize hands as often as possible.
  • Wait and allow adequate social distancing as you pass through the hallways.


  • When to stay home

Students should not be in school if they are diagnosed with COVID-19, exposed to someone with COVID-19, instructed to quarantine, or if they are sick and experiencing any of these symptoms:

  • 4 fever or higher
  • Sore throat
  • New Cough
  • New shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
  • New severe headache



  • Student access to instructional activities when under quarantine

If you are notified by WCPSS Health Services of the need to have your student quarantine, please reach out to your student’s teachers who will provide you guidance on how to stay on track academically. All teachers are expected to maintain their Google Classroom sites that provide assignments and upcoming due dates. Also, when teachers are notified of your student’s status, they will provide you and your student Google Link information to access live instruction. Please be aware that this live instruction will likely be provided by someone other than your child’s teacher. However, they are covering the same general content and your student will still have the ability to communicate with their own teacher via email, agreed upon office hours, etc.  to maintain as much continuity as possible.



Thank you for your continued support of Leesville Road High School, where we take PRIDE in everything we do.
