      • Chills
      • Muscle pain
      • Excessive fatigue (extreme tiredness)
      • New or severe headache
      • New nasal congestion or runny nose
    • Have you, or anyone you have been in close contact with in the last 14 days, been diagnosed with COVID-19?
    • Have you been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a medical professional or a local public health official?
    • Are you, or is any member of your household who is symptomatic (has symptoms consistent with COVID-19), currently waiting for COVID-19 test results?

    If you reply YES to any of the questions in the checklist, stay home and do not come to school.

    • Contact your health care provider to determine if further action should be taken
    • Report any student absences via the school attendance line or Skyward Family Access, specifying if the absence is COVID-19 related. Our school nurses will follow up with any COVID-19 related cases.

    1. You feel better. Your cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms are better AND
