Mitigation Strategies

 

SCREENING PROCEDURES
It is the expectation of parents and/or guardians to only send healthy students to school each day throughout the year. If they any of the exhibit symptoms listed here, the students must remain home.

EXHIBITING COVID-19 SYMPTOMS AT SCHOOL
  • If an individual presents with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, they will be sent home and asked to contact their healthcare provider and/or to seek testing for COVID-19. If the healthcare provider believes the illness is caused by another illness, please provide documentation stating so and when the student may return to school.
    • The individual will need to stay home and be fever-free for 24-hours without the use of fever-reducing medication prior to returning to school.
    • If the individual tests negative for COVID-19, the student may return to school immediately upon providing test results.
    • If the individual tests positive for COVID-19, the date to return will be determined using the latest guidelines from the Indiana Department of Health.
COVID ISOLATION ROOMS
Students who present signs or symptoms of COVID will be sent to a designated area created in all buildings while awaiting pick-up.

HANDWASHING / SANITIZING
It is the expectation students will practice hand washing or sanitizing when entering/exiting the building, prior to meals and whenever using the restroom.

ENHANCED CLEANING

Custodial crews will clean and disinfect “high touch” points in common areas as needed, which include but are not limited to:

  • Desks, chairs, tables
  • Door handles, push plates
  • Stair rails
  • Water fountains
CONTACT TRACING
  • Per the Indiana Department of Health, contact tracing during the school day is no longer required.
  • In a continued effort to keep you informed of COVID positive cases occurring during the school day, we have launched school-specific webpages listing the following information where COVID positive cases have been reported:
    • Date, Teacher, Class Name/Class Period and Bus #
  • This information by clicking here or going to the COVID-19 Data Dashboard and will assist you in identifying if your student has been exposed to a COVID positive case.
COVID ISOLATION ROOMS
Students who present signs or symptoms of COVID will be sent to a designated area created in all buildings while awaiting pick-up.

ISOLATION PROCEDURES
  • If an individual (regardless of vaccination status) tests positive:
    • Stay home for 5 days.
    • Return to school on Day 6, if asymptomatic or symptoms are resolving.
    • Fever-free for 24-hours without medication.
    • It is encouraged to wear a mask at all times for additional 5 days.
    • Can resume extracurricular activities on Day 6 and is encouraged to wear a mask for Days 6-10.
  • If an individual (regardless of vaccination status) is exposed to someone with COVID-19, including home contacts, as long as asymptomatic, may remain in school and should wear a mask for 10 days.
    • If symptoms develop, seek testing and isolate at home.
      • If positive, follow isolation guidance. If negative, return to school when symptoms have resolved.
TIMELINE FOR RETURN
If an individual tests positive for COVID, the first day of symptoms or test date (if no symptoms) is Day 0, count 5 days for isolation, and the individual returns on Day 6 if above criteria is met.
