Parents/guardians must conduct an assessment of student’s health before the student leaves for school each day to check for common symptoms of COVID-19. Parents are expected to keep a log of symptoms and must keep students home who exhibit signs of illness, including:
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Repeated shaking with chills
Loss of taste or smell
Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit
Known close contact with a person who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19
If a student exhibits a common COVID-19 symptom during the school day, the student will enter a designated isolation area until he or she is able to be picked up by a parent or designated contact.
COVID-19 Testing: The Summit County Health Department will assist families in locating a testing site if and when necessary. At this time, testing for COVID-19 will not occur in schools.
If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, the health department will make specific recommendations and provide further guidance. The Summit County Public Health Department will contact anyone who might have been exposed and will provide direction. The district will be in close contact and cooperate with the health department to determine exposure.
