Report your child's absence from school to the school Attendance Office. NOTE: You only need to submit the absence once for the entire time your child is out due to COVID.
(Preferred method) Use the SchoolPass app. Be sure to include the reason for the absence as a positive COVID-19 test result in the comments section.
Call the Attendance Line at your child's school. Please include your child's first and last name, spelling of the last name, grade, reason for absence and a return phone number.
Isolate At Home
- People who test positive for COVID-19 must stay at home until all three of these things are true:
- They feel better. Their cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms are better; AND,
- It has been 10 days since they first felt sick or tested positive; AND,
- They have had no fever for at least 24 hours, without using medicine that lowers fever.
- If there is a positive COVID case in the household, other students in the household who are not fully vaccinated or have not had a lab confirmed case of COVID in the last 90 days, should stay home for 14 days (which starts after the last day of contact with the positive person).
Students must have documentation of their immunization status for certain diseases in order to attend school, as required by state law.
Feeling sick. Stay home. This will help spread contagious illnesses, including COVID-19, and keep our kids learning in school.
