Covid Testing and Quarantine Info

It will truly take a village to keep our Students, Families,Teachers and Staff healthy this year. We are imploring parents to keep an eye on your children's health, and please keep your student home if they are showing any signs of illness. 
 
Tracking Covid cases in our community is important because it tells us how well our mitigation strategies are working.  Reporting positive Covid cases helps us understand how to keep kids in In-Person School.  Covid Testing is readily available now, to anyone exhibiting symptoms. Here is a list of Covid testing sites throughout the valley!
 
The Salt Lake County Health Department is our local Health Department, and they are the official organization that our school must work with on Contact Tracing for Covid cases. It's very important that parents verify a home test with an official Covid test from a health care provider where positive cases are reported to the Salt Lake County Health Department. 
 
NEW Guidance about Isolation, Quarantining and what to do when a test is positive was released by the CDC on January 3, 2022. We are following this guidance, which we were advised to by the Utah Department of Health. The information below has been updated with the new guidance.
 

If your student is symptomatic, please have them tested! While you wait for the results of a Covid test your student should remain isolated at home. If the Covid Test is positive, your student must quarantine for 5 days from the date of the of the positive test. 

 

If  there is a positive Covid case in a classroom where all students in a classroom are wearing masks, ONLY the positive Covid case must quarantine. 

 

 Students who are exposed at school, and who are unvaccinated and/or not wearing masks at the time of exposure must quarantine five days from the last day of exposure. 

 

Students who are fully vaccinated, and exposed at school, may stay in school.  Students who are masked, and exposed at school may stay in school.

 

If a classroom has a positive case where that student was NOT wearing a mask, all students in the classroom are considered exposed unless they are vaccinated and/or wearing an N95 or KN95 mask. Exposed students must quarantine for 5 days.

 

Teachers and staff who are fully vaccinated and boosted may come to work, fully masked, unless they are symptomatic. Teachers who test positive for COVID must quarantine for 5 days from the date of their positive test.
