COVID-19 and School Attendance
It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to monitor their children’s health every morning before attending school. If your child shows signs of illness, please keep your child at home. If there are signs or symptoms of COVID-19, we recommend that you have your child tested.
COVID-19 symptoms are as follows:
· Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
· New loss of taste or smell
· Muscle or body aches
· Rigors (shivers)
· Sore throat
· Congestion or runny nose
· Nausea or vomiting
Per BRRSD protocol, a student who tests positive for COVID-19 must stay at home for 5 days (day 0 is the first day of symptoms or positive test) and wear a mask for 5 days upon return to school. There is no requirement for family members or other close contacts to quarantine as long as they are healthy. Please contact the School Nurse if you have any further questions.
