Showing symptoms of COVID-19

If your child has symptoms of COVID please keep them home and use one of the home COVID tests to test. If your child cannot attend school for any reason, please email

For students with symptoms, day 1 is the first full day after symptom onset (Day 0 is the day of symptom onset).

Those with symptoms may resume attending school after the day 5 (on day 6) if:

• They are fever free without fever reducing medicine for 24 hours and their symptoms are improving1; AND

• They wear a mask through day 10 (day 1 is the first full day following symptom onset).

For those that had no symptoms, day 0 is the day they were tested (not the day you received your positive test result) and Day 1 is the first full day following the day they were tested—if someone develops symptoms within the 10 days of testing the clock restarts at day 0 on the day of symptom onset.

Those with no symptoms may resume attending school after the day 5 (on day 6) if:

• They wear a mask through day 10.


We are grateful to have many tools to be able to continue their engagement and learning when they are home with you. I hope that they stay healthy and the isolation passes without incident.

Every morning that they are isolated or quarantined, if they feel well enough, please log into Google Classroom and comment on the morning question by 10:00 am at the latest. Your child’s classroom teacher may post additional assignments for your child. You should always spend some time on Zearn and some time on Razkids (K-2) or iReady (3-5) for reading. We always encourage other reading activities and things like cooking or imaginative play together that work on a variety of skills.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if there’s any tech support you need, especially if you need your child’s password reset for their DOE username, or need a device or internet access for your child to be able to participate.
