If a Glen student or staff member experiences symptoms of an illness throughout the day, including a fever (100.4°F or greater), cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, unusual fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, conjunctivitis, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or other symptoms that are out of character for the child and that prohibit the child from participating normally, they will be sent home.
During the coronavirus pandemic/endemic, please refer to the CDC website for how to best help your child. Children previously diagnosed with COVID-19 and recovered must follow the same protocol and health policies as children without a prior diagnosis.
As a reference, please review the CDC guidelines for Isolating when you are sick and when to quarantine.
Glen siblings of an Ill student
As of Oct 3, 2022, if your child is ill, their Glen sibling does not need to be excluded from school. Depending on the nature of the illness, Glen staff reserve the right to have the Glen sibling wear a mask until the ill child’s health diagnosis can be resolved.
Returning to In-person education on The Glen’s campus:
Students and staff must be symptom-free* for 24 hours, be able to participate normally in school activities, AND have satisfied one of the following criteria:
— Isolate for at least 5 days since symptoms first appeared AND have had no symptoms for at least 24 hours. No COVID-19 test is needed.
— The child or staff member receives one negative COVID-19 test and has had no symptoms for at least 24 hours. (no need for an alternate diagnosis or 2nd test)
