Return To School From Absence Information
All children must be 100% healthy when returning to school.

1). If your child is not 100% and has any signs of illness, they are required to stay home for 24 hours minimum after the symptoms have resolved without the use of medications and no new additional symptoms develop. Use parental discretion to decide if your child needs to see a physician. Parents are required to submit a student absence form each day your child is absent with updated status. If you need to share additional information with the nurses, include it in the student absence form as the nurses review these daily.

2) If your child is Covid-19 exposed then they may return 10 days after last contact (day 11) with Covid-19 positive person. If the exposure happens at school, the parents will receive an email from the school with a return date. If the exposure occurs from a known source outside of school, such as a family member, speak to your child's pediatrician and inform the school nurse to verify their return date. If at any point your child develops any symptoms, then contact your pediatrician and the school nurse to update your return date. Parents are required to submit a student absence form each day and include any changes. Per the Diocese of Baton Rouge, your child may not participate in extracurricular or co-curricular activities, including sports teams, PE class, music instruction, field trips, etc. until day 15.

Individuals who are in close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for a total of 15 minutes during a 24-hour period) must quarantine for 10 days unless they: 
  • are asymptomatic and choose to show documentation of a vaccination 
  • or show documentation of a positive COVID-19 test taken through a medical facility within the last 90 days. 

If your child does meet the exceptions listed above, please contact the school nurse, via email, so that the return date can be adjusted. 

3) If your child tests positive for Covid-19, after speaking with your child's pediatrician, email the absence line and contact the school nurse to verify the return date. Parents are responsible for notifying of any close contacts that occur outside of the classroom.

As with any absence, be sure to remain in direct communication with all of your child's teachers.
