    COVID-19 2023 - 2024 SCHOOL YEAR

    IF YOU HAVE A POSITIVE COVID -19 TEST (PCR, LAMP or ANTIGEN): We are following VTDOH Guidelines.

    •  https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19/symptoms-sickness/what-do-if-you-test-positive-covid-19

      1. Notify close contacts of the positive test results. If they develop symptoms, they should test immediately.  Otherwise, if they do not have symptoms, but have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19, it is recommended to test five (5) full days after the COVID-19 exposure.

        • If you use an at-home antigen test and the result is negative, test again 48 hours later.

        • If you have a negative PCR or LAMP test, no follow-up test is needed. 

      2. Notify the school nurse, Maura Sawtelle in HR and your health care provider of the positive test result. Continue to enter absences into Frontline absence management.

      3. A five day isolation is required from the first symptom or date of positive COVID test result.  Return to work is permitted with improved symptoms and no fever for the previous 24 hours without use of fever-reducing medication.

      4. Report the positive at-home test results using this link.
