If a household member is placed on mandatory quarantine due to COVID-19 contact due to an outside of school exposure, all household members will be required to quarantine. Students may not attend school if a household member has a pending evaluation or test for COVID-19.
If the primary contact is able to fully quarantine away in a separate residence from the student, then the student may be permitted to attend school after the primary contact tests negative. These decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
If the primary contact is not able to quarantine away from the student, then the student will be required to quarantine at home with the primary contact and not attend school until the primary contact is released from quarantine.
If the primary contact is another child or adult exposed IN A SCHOOL setting (not inclusive of athletics), we will permit household members to attend school if separation and masking is adhered to at home. This is due to the proven low likelihood of transmission in the classroom.
Example 1) - A student is informed of an obligation to quarantine due to a COVID-19 diagnosis of a classmate. The Student's sibling may attend school during this quarantine period if Child A has no symptoms, sleeps in a different sleeping space and the family agrees to mask at home. If Child A develops any symptoms, the sibling may not attend school.
Example 2) A parent is exposed to COVID-19 by a friend at an unmasked dinner party and has no symptoms. The parent’s student may only attend school after the parent has a negative PCR test AND if the parent is able to fully quarantine away from their child.
