Students should stay home from in-person school if they have symptoms of COVID-19. This reduces the risk of transmission and the potential for classroom quarantines. Testing is currently recommended for students with 1 major symptom or at least two minor symptoms.
Major symptoms are cough, shortness of breath, or new changes in sense of smell and taste.
Minor symptoms include fever, chills, rigors, muscle ache/myalgia, sore throat, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea runny nose, or fatigue.
Morris Jeff follows the gold standard of 14-day quarantine for individuals who are exposed to a confirmed, positive COVID case. Individuals who test positive must quarantine for 10 days with symptom improvement and 24 hours fever-free.
Please report any symptoms and/or test results to the school nurse:
Students who are absent from school with symptoms will need a doctor’s note or a negative test to return to in-person learning.
