Resolution Proposal Regarding COVID-19

  • This resolution applies to all students and staff exposed at home, in the community or in the school setting.

  • Students and staff may choose to follow the current CDC guidelines without penalty.

  • Students who are positive to a COVID-19 test will need to quarantine for 5 days either from the date of symptom onset or if asymptomatic, date of the positive COVID-19 test.  After the quarantine period is up, they also need to be fever free for 24 hours in order to return to school.

    • Symptom onset or test date is considered day 0.  On day 6 the student may return to school if they are also fever free for 24 hours without using fever reducing medicine.  Example: Symptoms start or positive test on January 20, individual may return on January 26.

  • If a student has close contact with a person at school who has tested positive for COVID-19, the administration will contact the student’s parent/caregiver to inform them that the student was in close contact with a positive person in accordance with CDC guidelines. According to the Clermont County Health Department, a close contact is defined as someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes (total/cumulative time) starting from 2 days before illness onset or if asymptomatic students, 2 days prior to positive test.

  • A student who is considered a close contact and is asymptomatic will not be quarantined from school and will continue to be eligible to participate in school activities when parents complete a daily health check which includes temperature and observation noting that the student is symptom free. 

  • Masks are optional.

  • A close contact and/or positive student may voluntarily quarantine for up to 5 days with no penalties. Assignments will be provided.

  • If a close contact has had a positive COVID-19 test within 90 days they will be exempt from the above. Parents will be encouraged to monitor for symptoms and report accordingly.

  • If a close contact has had an antibody test which shows they do have antibodies for COVID-19, then they will be exempt from the above. Parents will be encouraged to monitor for symptoms and report accordingly.
