Stay Home When You Are Sick


It’s critical that students who are sick or not feeling well stay home. If a student begins to not feel well, shows signs of illness, or becomes sick during the day, they must immediately tell their teacher.  The school will contact the child’s family so that a family member can pick them up immediately.


Students are required to stay home if:

  • They have tested positive for or are showing COVID-19 symptoms, until they meet criteria for return.
  • They have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19, until they meet criteria for return.
  • They have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher.
  • Another student or WCPSS employee living in the same house is experiencing a symptom of illness.


Please see for the requirements in order to return to school or work.
