From the Health Office
We have a number of respiratory illnesses, including COVID, circulating throughout our school community currently. As a reminder:
Stay Home When Sick:
Students and staff should stay home with COVID-related symptoms and any other potentially contagious illnesses or symptoms including the following:
● Vomiting or Diarrhea - must be 24 hours symptom-free and able to tolerate food and drink before returning to school.
● Fever 100.4 or greater - must be home until fever free without the use of medication for greater than 24 hours.
● Any infection requiring antibiotics - keep your student home until they have been on antibiotics for 24 hours.
● A persistent cough that disrupts normal activity.
● Excessive nasal drainage - check with your child’s doctor before sending your child back to school.
● Unexplained rash - check with your child’s doctor before sending your child to school.
● Red or draining eyes - check with your child’s doctor before sending your child to school.
● COVID-19 infection - please call or email the school nurse to determine the next steps and follow VDH Isolation guidance. It is recommended that when returning
to school after a positive test, a mask is worn for an additional five days.
● Influenza - stay home until fever free without medication for 24 hours.
● Any other symptoms or illness that impede a student’s ability to learn or staff’s ability to work.
The Health Department recommends getting tested if you develop symptoms at any time – even if you are vaccinated or have recently had COVID-19.
Please notify your school nurse and the attendance line (per your school’s preferred procedure) when your student stays home with symptoms.
● Testing is currently recommended for symptomatic individuals.
● Please report all positive at-home test results to both your school nurse and the VDH reporting line link here.
● Schools have a limited supply of at-home antigen tests. Please contact your school if a test kit is needed.
COVID-19 Primary Vaccine Series and Boosters:
The COVID-19 primary vaccine series as well as the Omicron-specific COVID-19 boosters are widely available in Vermont. The booster is for people 12 and older who have completed their primary COVID-19 vaccine series. Look for Pfizer Bivalent Booster 12+ and Moderna Bivalent Booster 18+ in the list of walk-in clinics. Boosters are also available through pharmacies and doctors' offices. Talk to your health care provider about the right time to get vaccinated or boosted. Learn more about these boosters.
When: Wednesdays starting September 21 from 2:45 to 3:25
Who: Everyone is invited!
What you need: Nothing, we have everything you need!
Why: Build leadership, problem solving, and cooperative learning skills
Is it like the Strangers Things 4 Hellfire club?: Yes in that it's dramatic and fun, no in that the monsters the kids fight do not actually exist in an upside down parallel universe. Probably.
