If your child tests positive for Covid

  • Your child should isolate if they test positive for Covid-19, or if they are sick and you suspect they have Covid-19 but do not yet have test results. If they are positive for Covid-19, please notify your school nurse immediately. They will be able to return to school, including after-school activities and athletics, if they meet the following criteria:

    • They have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication,
    • They have not had gastrointestinal symptoms for 24 hours,
    • Their other symptoms are resolving, and
    • They wear a well-fitting mask.

    If these criteria are not met, your child should isolate for a full 10 days.

    Please be prepared to pick your child up from school if they develop Covid-19 symptoms during the school day.

  • Although masking is no longer required in school, we welcome mask use, and  a well-fitting mask is recommended in the following circumstances:

    • For 5 days after resuming normal activities following a Covid infection;
    • For 10 days following Covid-19 exposure (testing is recommended at least five days after exposure);
    • When community transmission is medium, and you or your child is at high risk of becoming very ill;
    • Whenever community transmission is high; and
    • In a public transportation setting.
