Sick Student at Home? Follow This Protocol:

If your child is unwell, determine whether symptoms are “major” or “minor,” and follow this health-department guidance. According to Larimer County public-health officers, illness symptoms are “major” if the patient is feeling feverish or chilled, temperature of 100.4F or higher, loss of taste or smell, new or unexplained persistent cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing. “Minor” symptoms include sore throat, runny nose/congestion, muscle or body aches, headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Any child exhibiting major or minor symptoms should not come to school.

When your child may return to school:
-If your child has minor symptoms only and the symptoms resolve within 48 hours.
-If your child has any major symptoms lasting longer than 24 hours or minor symptoms lasting longer than 48 hours, your child needs a doctor's note with an alternate diagnosis before returning to school, or must wait 10 days from the onset of symptoms before returning, with the last 24 hours being fever-free.
-If your child has a negative COVID-19 test, he or she may return to school once all symptoms have cleared for 24 hours.

If you have specific questions, please contact the school office or your healthcare provider.
