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, please refer to the CDC website for how to best help your child. Children who have been previously diagnosed with COVID-19 and have recovered must still follow the same protocol and health policies as children without a prior diagnosis. If your child has recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90-days, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your child’s return to school plan.
Glen siblings of Ill student
Please note, that until a symptomatic child’s health diagnosis can be resolved (see below), other Glen students in the immediate family must also be excluded from school. Once the illness is confirmed as non-COVID related, Glen siblings can resume in-person instruction while the ill child recovers.
Returning to In-person education on The Glen’s campus:
Students and staff must be symptom-free* for 48-hours AND satisfy one of the following criteria:
— Isolate for at least 5 days since symptoms first appeared AND have had no symptoms for at least 48 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 48 hours. (no need for an alternate diagnosis or 2nd test)
A child or staff member who received a positive COVID-19 test result must:
— isolate for at least 5 days from positive COVID-19 test (date of positive COVID-19 test is Day 0), and
— be fever-free for at least 48 hours without fever-reducing medication, and
— be able to wear a mask for the entire time in the school building, except for lunch, and
— be symptom-free and able to participate normally in activities.
Any questions or concerns about the ability to return to school, please reach out to your child’s teacher and Johnna Valenti.
*Regardless of their diagnosis, all students need to be symptom-free and able to participate normally in activities when they return to school.
