Covid-19 Quarantine Guidelines Updated 1/5/2022

We are off to a good start in 2022. Our testing clinic yesterday was well utilized and the first day back has been good.
I want to let you know about new COVID procedures. This information was provided by the Portage Health District today. 

If a person is COVID positive they are to isolate at home for 5 days. On day 6, if they do not have symptoms or the fever is gone and the symptoms are improving, they may return to school wearing a mask for the next 5 days. If a person is exposed as a close contact to a COVID positive person in school, at home, or in the community and they are symptom free, they may remain in school wearing a mask for 10 days. They will be asked to test on or around day 5. If the test is negative, they can remain in school. If a person is exposed as a close contact to a COVID positive person and has symptoms or symptoms develop, they are to remain home for 5 days then may return to school with a mask for the next 5 days as long as they test negative. 

The requirement for school sports and extracurricular activities remains the same.

This updated guidance will allow many more students and staff to remain at school. This will allow the educational process to have fewer interruptions. As always, if the guidance changes, we will change with it. Thank you for your continued cooperation and understanding as we navigate the school year.

KNOW! Handling Holiday Stress

Ready or not, the holiday season is here, along with all the festivities and fun that go along with it: family gatherings, shared meals, gift-giving, party planning, special school and church events, hosting out-of town family stays, and on and on. It’s enough to make your head spin just thinking about it.

Birthday Treats

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently came out with guidelines and a list of healthy foods that schools are being asked to serve in place of cookies, candy, and other less healthy foods. Schools are encouraged to follow these guidelines, not only with food being sold but with any food being brought into the school. You are strongly encouraged to send in healthy snacks for birthday treats and/or holiday parties when requested.

At this time, we will allow Birthday Treats to be brought to school. We are required to inform you of the Healthy Eating Guidelines and suggest that you use this when selecting a treat. Whatever you choose, please note that all treats brought to school for the purpose of sharing with others, need to be prepackaged so we are able to know and see the ingredients list. There are many students who have a variety of food allergies and having the ingredients listed helps the school nurse determine if a student with allergies can eat a particular treat.
