Resources for Parents & Families

Your child can continue to go to school if they are well, unless they are experiencing COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms.

It’s important to monitor for your child for symptoms of COVID-19 and keep them home from school if they are not feeling well.

Individuals can notify their close contacts when informed of their positive COVID-19 test result..
