If a student is feeling any of the following symptoms that are consistent with possible COVID-19 (fever of 100.4 degrees or more, a new cough (different from baseline), vomiting, or any new onset diarrhea) OR any other symptoms of illness that could possibly be COVID related:

**If the student tests negative, please have them remain home until their condition improves, being fever-free without fever-reducing medication for 24 hrs.  If the student receives a Dr. note stating they can return, please follow the suggestions by the student's physician.  Also, please contact the attendance office (as noted above) to ensure the student's absences are cleared.
