Travel During COVID

Traveling for work, pleasure, or family events may create an opportunity to contract COVID-19 and transmit it to others when you return. In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are asking families who have recently traveled to follow these procedures prior to your child attending school:

  1. Have your child tested for COVID-19 with an RT-PCR test. Tests are widely available through CVS, Walgreens, your personal physician, or a Lake County testing site

  2. Do not send your child to school until you receive a negative result

  3. Share the results with school and your physician

  4. If you or your child exhibit any COVID-19 symptom, please contact your personal physician for further instructions.

As a reminder, by sending your child to school each day, you are certifying that your child does not have any COVID-19 symptom:

  • Fever or 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

  • Diarrhea

Our goal is to maintain a COVID-19 free environment at school. By avoiding risky behaviors and following the three W's - 1. Wear a mask, 2. Wash your hands, 3. Watch your distance, we can reduce the risk of COVID-19 in our schools and keep them open for our children.
