This flow chart was provided by the New River Health District and should be used in assessing when children should stay home from school and when Covid testing might be necessary. Unfortunately, we have been dealing with a number of cases where parents are aware that a child is symptomatic and still sends that child to school.
Please use this chart and communicate with your child's school whenever it is necessary to keep them home because they are symptomatic. The school will work out a plan for asynchronous virtual instruction and the child will not be counted as absent for days missed. We appreciate your assistance in helping us reduce the chance of Covid transmission occurring within our classrooms. Thank you.
