Sick Student at Home? Follow This Protocol:

If your child is unwell, determine whether symptoms are “major,” or “minor,” and follow health-department guidance. According to Larimer County public-health officers, illness symptoms are “major” if the patient is feeling feverish or chilled, temperature of 100.4F or higher, loss of taste or smell, new or unexplained persistent cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing. “Minor” symptoms include sore throat, runny nose/congestion, muscle or body aches, headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Major COVID-like symptoms require either a doctor's clearance note with an alternate diagnosis, and/or a ten-day quarantine prior to returning to school. Any student with mild COVID-like symptoms that clear within 24 hours may follow regular illness guidelines, and return to school. Otherwise, they are expected to adhere to the same guidelines. Please remember a COVID-19 test alone will not clear a student for returning to school. If you have specific questions, please contact the school office, and/or your healthcare provider.
