COVID-19 Protocol for Students and Staff

Stay Home When Your Sick

If you have symptoms of Covid-19, stay home, monitor the symptoms, and test for Covid-19. 

If You Test Positive for Covid-19

Call your school and let the school nurse know that you tested positive for Covid-19. 

Days 0-5:

  • Stay home for a minimum of 5 days from the time symptoms started. 
  • If no symptoms, stay home for 5 days from the date the test was taken. 

Days 6 and Beyond:

  • You may return to school if symptoms have improved and you are fever-free for 24 hours without medication.
  • You should wear a mask through day 10.
    • With two sequential negative antigen tests taken 48 hours apart, the mask may be removed sooner than day 10. 

Exposure to Covid-19

The following are recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) if you have been exposed to someone with Covid-19:

  • Wear a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days
  • Get tested at least 5 days after exposure
  • Watch for symptoms for 10 days 
  • Take extra precautions for 10 days when around people more likely to get very sick from Covid-19
  • If symptoms develop, isolate and test for Covid-19

COVID-19 Exposure At Home

  • If you live with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and needs to quarantine:
    • You do NOT need to quarantine (regardless of vaccination status).
    • Get tested if you have symptoms and/or five days after the exposure.

COVID-19 Exposure at School

  • We will not be quarantining close contacts who were potentially exposed while at school.
  • Families will be notified when 5% of the entire school has tested positive for Covid-19.
