Our goal is to keep our schools open, and students learning in-person, safely. The guidance provided by the Grant County Health District and WA Department of Health is subject to change frequently. Here are the most recent requirements for K-12 Covid response protocols:
DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL WHEN SICK.
It is more important than ever to remind our community that children who are ill should be kept home regardless of symptom severity. This includes a cold or flu type illness. Please do not send your child to school sick!
Remember, illness is not solely determined by temperature. Illness may present as a variety of symptoms including congestion, cough, sniffles, and sore throats. In addition, children with a temperature of 100 degrees or greater will be sent home.We encourage everyone to continue to abide by COVID safety protocol by avoiding large gatherings, maintaining physical distance as much as possible, and wearing a mask.
Thank you for helping us to keep our schools healthy!
What to Do if Someone Develops Symptoms of COVID-19 While at School
Any student or staff who reports COVID-19-like symptoms must be immediately isolated from others and sent home and referred to diagnostic testing as soon as feasible, regardless of vaccination status. While waiting to leave school, the individual with symptoms must be isolated in a designated isolation space. They must wear a well-fitting face covering or mask. Anyone providing care or evaluation to the isolated individual must wear appropriate PPE.
