    STUDENT ILLNESS AND RETURN TO SCHOOL

    If your student becomes ill at school and they exhibit Covid symptoms, parents will be contacted to pick up the student from school to take home. After being out sick, a student may return to school...

    *If the student tests negative for COVID-19 and/or receives an alternate diagnosis, students will need a doctor’s note indicating a negative result or a diagnosis of condition related to symptoms, and permission to return to school. The student will be permitted to return to school when they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications.

    *If a student tests positive for COVID-19,

    • 10 days have passed since the student began to experience symptoms and

    • 24 hours have passed with no fever (without the use of fever reducing medications). and

    • 24 hours after symptoms have begun to improve.

    DISMISSAL PROCEDURES


    An announcement will be made dismissing bus riders, two buses at a time. Walkers and car riders will be dismissed by gradel level and separated by 5 minutes. 6th grade walkers/car riders will be dismissed at 3:20pm, 7th grade at 3:25pm, and 8th grade at 3:30pm.
     
    If your child is a walker or a car rider, they will exit the B-8 doors on the left hand side of the school. If you are picking up your student, do not enter the bus lot in front of the main entrance but rather drive to the left hand side of the school. Please follow the Kiss and Ride Map.
     
    EARLY DISMISSAL PROCEDURES

    It is no longer necessary to send a note in with your child to get an early dismissal pass from their House Secretary. And there is no need to call to ask that we have your student ready for pick up as we will not be calling them to the main office to wait for you. Instead, we recommend that you arrive 20 minutes early. Be sure to wear a mask and ring the bell at the main entrance. A front office Secretary will ask you to show your ID. Upon vetting your ID, we will then call your student for dismissal.
     
    TARDY PROCEDURES
    If your child is tardy to school, you can either park and walk them up to the main entrance doors. Or you can pull up to drop them off and also call the main office at 571-252-2320. If your student is a walker and they are tardy, we will call you to inform you that they were late.
