October 25, 2022: Important Reminder about Illness/Symptoms

Greetings Families,

Please review the important reminder about illness.

If your child is showing any COVID-19 symptoms, please keep your child home and contact the attendance office at (619) 656- 6252 x 550110 to report their illness and reason for absence.

What are COVID Like Symptoms? A person (vaccinated or unvaccinated) has one or more symptoms associated with COVID-19: Possible symptoms include fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and/or diarrhea.

Do I have to test my child for return to school when they were sent home with COVID-like symptoms or could not come to school due to COVID-like symptoms? Yes. A single negative antigen result in response to an onset of symptoms is acceptable to allow return to school/work when symptoms are improving and your child has been fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medications for 24 hours.

What if my child has a documented pre-existing medical condition? Please contact your doctor and contact our nurse, Maia at (619) 656-6252x 550110. Nurse Maia will help assist you further.
