Current Covid Protocol

Guidelines for Covid Illnesses
Posted on 01/02/2023

If your student tests positive for Covid-19, they must stay home for 5 days. The day they started symptoms is Day 0, the next day is Day 1, then Day 2, etc. They may return to school on Day 6 and must wear a mask for an additional 5 days. A headache, scratchy throat, congestion/runny nose, cough, and/or fever are some of the more common symptoms of Covid-19.

Siblings and close contacts do not need to quarantine and can come to school as long as they are not having symptoms of illness. However, they must wear a mask for 10 days when around others following exposure.

It is the responsibility of each family to assess their children’s daily health and ensure they are not sending sick children to school. NPS and its school nurses will not be contact tracing, tracking or recommending how this should be handled within families. In this phase of the pandemic, it is each family’s responsibility to address possible health concerns.
