Thank you all for everything you are doing to promote health and safety at Clark school. It takes a village to keep us all healthy! I just wanted to re-send out our previous information from the nurses and highlight the update from last month:
Update: If your child is experiencing 2 or more low risk symptoms or at least 1 high risk symptom on the Student Symptom Decision Tree, your child AND SIBLINGS IN THE SAME FAMILY, should stay home until evaluated by your healthcare provider. A doctor’s note and documentation must be provided before your child(ren) can return to school.
If a parent or relative living in the home is being tested for COVID-19 and awaiting results, child(ren) in the household should remain home from school. Students should not return until negative results are received.
