COVID-19

The past two years have posed some challenges with COVID-19 and now with the sub-variants increasing, we want to assure you we will remain vigilant to keep our students and staff healthy and safe in their building environments. Please know that we will keep you informed and just like last year, flexibility is extremely important. To prevent the spread:

  • Staff or students exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms must stay home
  • All students needing immunizations must receive them before the first day of school
  • Students who are sent home from school with a fever may not return for at least 24 hours

Any student testing positive for COVID-19 will need to stay out of school for a total of 5 days from onset of symptoms, or positive test. They may return on day 6 if they have been fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications, and have significant improvement of symptoms. We recommend the student wear a mask for days 6-10 to prevent the spread of illness per CDC guidelines.  Proof of a positive test will be required to record attendance appropriately.  

Students may complete their learning tasks and/or assignments at home. Attendance will be determined by the completion of assigned lessons and activities. COVID-19 positive students who complete assignments within 5 school days (of the assigned date), will be counted present for school attendance.

SJSD is not currently contact tracing or quarantining students for exposure to COVID-19. However, we will do our best to notify close contacts. 

 We ask that you monitor your student for symptoms including: 

  • Sore Throat 
  • Fever 
  • Body aches
  • Headache 
  • Cough 
  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting 
  • Diarrhea 
  • Loss of Taste and Smell 

If you develop 2 or more of these symptoms you should consult your health care provider. 

The health and safety of our students is of vital importance to their education.  Please do your best to prevent illness by covering your cough, washing your hands, and staying home when sick.
