Covid 19 Symptoms

This is just a gentle reminder that there are stringent protocols in place for “COVID-19 like” symptoms in school.  We need you to practice vigilance this year so that we can ensure our students and staff are safe. 

If your child is experiencing any of these in the morning before school, please keep them at home.  Otherwise, they will be sent to the Cares Room and sent home until they are evaluated.

  • Fever greater than 100.4
  • A new cough (not due to another health condition)
  • Headache (not due to another health condition, hunger, thirst, stress or injury)
  • A new sore throat (not related to another health condition)
  • Abdominal Pain (unrelated to hunger, constipation, injury or stress)
  • Nausea/Vomiting/Diarrhea (not associated with a chronic gastrointestinal condition)
  • Runny nose/Congestion (unrelated to allergies or another health condition)
  • New loss of taste, smell or appetite
  • Fatigue (more than normal or sudden onset)
  • New muscle pain (unrelated to a health condition or P.E./Recess)

If your child has seasonal allergies or a health condition, please share with your child's teacher or Mr. James (Chrisman) in the Main Office.  We do not currently have a School Health Aide (SHA) but the teacher and the Main Office can provide consistency knowing your child's condition.
