If a Glen student or staff member’s morning health screening is unsuccessful (temperature greater than 99.5°F), they will be sent home. Similarly, if a 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.
Returning to In-person education on The Glen’s campus:
Unvaccinated children or staff must be symptom-free* for three days AND satisfy one of the following criteria:
— The child or staff member is isolated for at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared AND has had no symptoms for at least 3 days. No COVID-19 test is needed.
— The child or staff member receives one negative COVID-19 test accompanied by an alternate diagnosis from a physician. The test results and alternate diagnosis must be submitted to The Glen on a doctor’s note.
— The child or staff member receives two negative COVID-19 tests at least 24 hours apart. Test results must be submitted to the school office.
Glen siblings of Ill student
Please note, until a symptomatic child’s health diagnosis can be resolved (see above), 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.
A child or staff member (regardless of vaccination status) who received a positive COVID-19 test result must:
— isolate for at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared, and
— be fever-free for at least 3 days without fever-reducing medication, and
— be symptom-free and able to participate normally in activities when they return to school.
You may also find this infographic helpful for determining when it is appropriate for your child to return to The Glen after they have been sick or exposed to COVID-19, especially regarding siblings. Any questions or concerns about the ability to return to school, please reach out to your child’s teacher.
*Regardless of their diagnosis, all students need to be symptom-free and able to participate normally in activities when they return to school.
