Dear Rams Families
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I am sending out an early Principal Message this week with some important updates and information. Please read this in its entirety. You’ll see, I have tried to simplify updated Return to School guidelines for positive cases or exposures. Additionally, you will find information about student attendance at basketball games as well as report cards.
Positive COVID-19 Test: Regardless of vaccination status, the student must stay home (ISOLATE) for 5 days, from the date symptoms began. If the student is still showing symptoms after the 5th day, they should remain home until they are symptom free.
Exposure to someone who tested positive: There are multiple pathways to a student returning to school after an exposure:
Exposures at school: Students who are not fully vaccinated after close contact in a classroom or other school setting: If masks were being worn appropriately and consistently by both the person with COVID-19 and the potentially exposed person do NOT need to quarantine.
Please note the focus on terminology used moving forward:
ISOLATE: refers to testing positive
QUARANTINE: refers to be exposed to someone who tested positive
If you have a positive case or an exposure, please email me directly so we can discuss a return date for your student. I or one of our Assistant Principals will follow up with you regarding this.
Due to multiple issues that arose at our first home game we will be putting new requirements in placefor the remainder of our home games. These include:
