Eligibility to Return to School
A student who falls under one of the 3 criteria will need a doctor’s note indicating they are eligible to return to school with a specified date of return.
All Covid-19 related notes will need to come to the front office for review by the school nurse prior to the student entering campus.
Once an established return date has been issued by the health care professional and the return note has been reviewed by the school nurse, the student will be admitted to class. Students will receive a “Return to Class” slip from the school nurse notifying teachers of their eligibility to return.
