Spring Break Health Reminders
Coming back from Spring Break, we want to remain vigilant in our collective effort to keep Pleasant Grove safe for all students and staff members. We must continue doing all we can to limit everyone’s risk of exposure to COVID-19 and remain vigilant in practicing the 3 Ws:
- Wear a face covering.
- Wait apart to maintain social distancing.
- Wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer.
International Travel: If you are traveling internationally over Spring Break, please get tested and stay home upon your return. Get tested 3-5 days after your trip and stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel, even if your test is negative. If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
- If you test negative, stay home and self-quarantine for the full seven days.
- If you do not receive your COVID-19 tests results within those seven days, stay home until you receive your negative test results
- If your test is positive, do not come to work/school for 14 days from your positive test.
- If you choose not to get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for ten days after international travel.
Required Forms: If you have requested for your child to return to school for in-person learning, you will need to complete a Request for Bus Transportation online with WCPSS.
