COVID-19 Policies For Students & Staff
Parents need to be attentive to the daily health of their children and are expected to make a commitment to ensure their child is symptom free and safe to attend school each day. This includes being fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.
School staff will also be receiving professional development on how to recognize potential COVID-19 symptoms. No one should be in our buildings if they are experiencing any symptoms of illness.
If we have a confirmed case of COVID-19, we will follow direction from the Columbus Public Health Department. This may include closing a classroom, school, or schools for a period of time and shifting quickly to remote learning at home for students who are impacted.
Many of our new procedures are designed to support contact tracing should a confirmed case occur. This will assist the Health Department with quickly identifying and contacting individuals who may have been exposed.
