How will West Brooklyn deal with any cases of COVID-19?
Example of Response to Student Illness:
If a student is not feeling well or staff think a student is ill. Admin contacted.
Student escorted to nurse in Room 204 and stays there until determination is made.
Student examined by nurse. Family called for pick-up/dismissal home if so determined. Student encouraged to get tested at site by the school.
Teachers, students in classes of child MAY be questioned to determine extent of exposure.
Student may NOT return to school until they produce proof of a negative COVID-19 test.
If student/teacher test positive: classroom closed, teachers and students go “remote” for 14 days. If multiple students/teachers confirmed in same class, all classes they share go remote. If 2 confirmed cases not linked to one class, school goes fully remote for everyone.
