To report an absence:

If your child is experiencing any COVID symptoms, please keep them home, seek medical care, and have them tested. They may return to in-person school with a negative COVID test or a doctor’s note with a confirmed alternative diagnosis if they have gone 24 hours with no fever and their symptoms are better. 

If you are unable to get a test or doctor’s note, your child must stay home until at least 10 days have passed since symptom onset. 

COVID symptoms include: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, runny nose or congestion, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
