As always, we are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our students and staff. We are monitoring these numbers closely – and will act accordingly with any information presented to us.
- On December 27th the CDC released revised guidelines for isolation for the public about COVID-19.

(In addition to seeing the guidelines below, you can also find them on the CDC website here)
- Isolate – this goes for EVERYONE – regardless of vaccination status.
- Stay home for 5 days.
- If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house.
- Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
- If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves
Types of Masks Acceptable to Wear in the Buildings
The following information was taken directly from the CDC site
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Sing the Happy Birthday song twice to help know when it has been 20 seconds.
If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers that contain at least 60% alcohol and make sure you cover the front and back of your hands and rub them until they feel dry.
Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, and then dispose of the tissue and clean your hands immediately. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve by coughing or sneezing into your elbow, not your hands, to cover your mouth or nose.
Limit close contact with people who are sick, and avoid sharing food, drinks, or utensils.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
All students and staff should wear a mask inside school buildings.
