COVID screeners, quarantine information

Parents, staff and visitors, please use the COVID screening tools at the bottom of the page to determine if you or your child may have been exposed to COVID and should avoid visiting our buildings.  Please note, these are not the only reasons that a child should be kept home or would be sent home.  Children should always be fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medicine before coming to school.  Adults and students also should not attend if they have vomited in the last 24 hours. See our When To Keep Your Child Home document for other common ailments.
