  • Anyone with a body temperature greater than 100.4 will not be allowed on campus and a Person Under Investigation (PUI) Form will be completed to aid for potential contact tracing.
  • Anyone who develops any fever, respiratory, or flu-like symptoms during the school day will be sent to a designated room isolated from others until they are picked up from campus.  PUI Form will be completed to aid for potential contact tracing.
Return to Campus Protocol (all employees and students)

Mandatory Reporting Policy
