WCSD COVID-19 Policy
The policy states that if your child complains of one of the several COVID-19 symptoms, they must be excluded from in-person learning for 10 calendar days. The symptoms that will exclude your child are: fever, sore throat, cough, runny nose, stomach ache, chest pain, difficulty breathing, smell and taste disorders, chills, muscle aches, vomiting, and diarrhea.
It is not required that your child get a COVID-19 test. But if you do, and the test is negative, please call our school nurse and your child will be allowed back at school before the 10 day minimum exclusion. While on the 10 day exclusion, your child will be placed on temporary distance learning. Please talk to your child's teacher about how to participate in distance learning. Your child will not be marked absent for the 10 days as long as they participate in distance learning or complete the make up work assigned by their classroom teacher.
Please be kind to our clinical aide and secretary when they review this policy with you after your child has complained of one or more of these symptoms. They are just delivering the message.
